CONSTRUCTION BUDGET SENDS MILLIONS TO GRAYS HARBOR

May 26, 2011

 

In the final hours of the special legislative session, lawmakers in the state House of Representatives passed a two-year state construction budget that will fund construction and repair of several Grays Harbor County projects. The final budget, a compromise that was negotiated with the state Senate, includes funding for a new spray park at Hoquiam’s Central Play Park, as well as for the repair of seawater intrusion and rot inside the historic Lady Washington’s engine room. Additionally, Grays Harbor will receive a $3.6 million loan through the state’s Public Works Trust Fund for construction of a wastewater treatment plant to serve Pacific Beach and Moclips. The project will increase the number sewer connections in the area. 24th District Representative Steve Tharinger says these types of public infrastructure projects provide a high return on investment.
