Mayor Erik Larson talks about the idea of consolidation, the Travelure Motel, Department of Health inspections, and public restrooms.
Concluding public restroom talk, the mayor and Doug take calls on crosswalks. Erik also gives an update on the crosswalk near East Heron and Harbor Street. The city finalized the annexation of the Charlie Creek property for the gun range. Larson also talks about the recent CERB grant.
Aberdeen has been awarded $50,000 from the Community Economic Revitalization Board, to help find the next tenant of the former 520 pontoon construction site. Mayor Erik Larson said that along with an $18,000 match from the state Department of Transportation, the funds will help surplus the facility, and look at future opportunities for other industrial uses of the site that would create local jobs and help our economy.
Larson said in a Facebook post “I look forward to working with DOT, the Port of Grays Harbor, and Greater Grays Harbor to ensure we maximize the investment already made in this site to create a lasting economic benefit for our community.”
Here is the Facebook conversation on the Travelure Motel from that day’s post.
