COSMO SAYS IT MAY HAVE A SOLUTION FOR “THAT SMELL”

November 28, 2011 Comments off

Sometimes love stinks – and there’s been no love lost between Harborites and the stink that sometimes eminates from the Cosmo Specialty Fibers plant.

But the company says they have a plan on how to deal with that stinky aroma.

Cosmo’s VP of Communication Robert Buchan tells the Daily World that the smell comes from bio-solids in the wastewater treatment ponds used by the mill.

Buchan says the company has reached agreements with mills in Port Townsend and Longview to ship the solids to be burned.

The company says crews have loaded the solids onto tanker trucks to ship them out.

The proposed levy is nearly the same as the current one thanks to the slightly rising property values in the city.

The levy amount raised would be $2.7 million.

CLOSURE OF NYC NOT ON THE LIST OF CUTS TO BRIDGE BUDGET GAP

November 28, 2011 Comments off

As state legislators figure out how to close a two billion dollar budget gap, Naselle residents are breathing a sigh of relief that the closure of the Youth Camp will not be among the cuts being considered.

When Governor Chris Gregoire announced her proposal last week on how to close the budget shortfall she did not list closing the camp but instead proposed nearly twelve million dollars in juvenile services cuts.

Closing NYC would further economically devastate an area already preparing for losing its salmon hatcheries and other cutbacks once the Legislature comes to terms on bridging the budget gap.
