Hoquiam Says “No” to Farmer’s Market, “Maybe” to Fire Station

HOQUIAM, Wash. – City staff will not ask the state for a Community Development Block Grant to improve Hoquiam’s Farmer’s Market on Sumner Street. City Administrator Brian Shay explained to the city council at last night’s meeting “We followed up with the State Department of Commerce and got feedback that the project would not be competitive.”
Shay said the city has a better chance to get grant funding if they apply to replace the East side Fire Station in it’s current location.
