Commissioners Want More Information on Flood Control District

MONTESANO, Wash. – The Grays Harbor County Commissioners have voted against adopting a resolution to form a Flood Control Zone District that would encompass the Chehalis River Basin Watershed. County Commissioner Herb Welch tells KBKW one of the biggest concerns was the formation of a potential taxing district “this resolution didn’t create taxes, it simply created a district that then down the line could create taxes.”
After nearly an hour of public comment at yesterday’s meeting, the Commissioners voted against the adoption, Welch said they plan to come back with more information on the Flood Control Zone District before proposing a formation again.
