ABERDEEN, Wash. - The Grays Harbor PUD will be changing the locations for pay stations in outlying areas of the county. Current pay stations located at Hoquiam Ace Hardware, D & K Grocery in Pacific Beach, Grayland Hardware, Image Flowers in Elma, Pick Rite Thriftway in Montesano, and the Westport-Grayland Chamber of Commerce will no longer accept payments on behalf of the Grays Harbor PUD effective November 30, 2013.
Beginning Monday December 2, 2013 payments can be made at any Anchor Bank location in Grays Harbor County, including Aberdeen, Elma, Hoquiam, Montesano, Ocean Shores, and Westport. The change is being made due to increased regulations around personal information related to customer accounts.
“The District appreciates the relationship and the quality of work that each pay station has provided; however, regulatory requirements have prompted these necessary changes.” said PUD General Manager Dave Ward.
The state Fish and Wildlife Department and Cascadia Research took tissue samples Tuesday to investigate what may have caused the whale to die. A few gray whales wash up on state beaches each year.
Grays Harbor County is located on the Southwest corner of the Olympic Peninsula along the Pacific Ocean. In no other county can you stick your toe in the Pacific Ocean one hour, and the next hour, be in the lush rain forest.
There are over 50 miles of pristine beaches to walk, beach comb or just get cozy in your room or at your campsite and watch and hear the majestic waves lapping the beaches. There are many photo opportunities to create memories for your family album.
