Lack of quorum cancels Dayton Council meeting


DAYTON - Due to lack of a quorum, the Dayton City Council's regular meeting Monday will be continued to Jan. 24.

Because of the delayed meeting, two public hearings scheduled for Jan. 10 will have to be re-advertised, Mayor Craig George said.

The hearings are on a request by Columbia Rural Electric Association to run an electrical line to their office on Main Street. The other hearing is on a moratorium on right of way requests. City officials are seeking the moratorium to have time to resolve conflicts in existing ordinances.

The Jan. 24 meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with a special meeting with state Department of Ecology representatives regarding the city's sewer treatment plant.

New regulations require the city to cease releasing affluent from the sewer plant into the Touchet River by May 2018. This will require a "major overhaul" of the sewer plant, George said.
