Curry Transfer and Recycling has announced it will no longer service the portable toilet at Social Security Bar since vandalism and graffiti continue to plague the area.
The vandalism, coupled with damage done to the City of Brookings’ sign at the popular summer spot, has prompted a new round of staff discussion about the 1.6 acres the city owns along the north bank of the Chetco River.
The Curry County Planning Commission last week approved a conditional use permit for Elk River Property Development to build an 18-hole golf course on 354 acres of a 1,008-acre cow pasture owned by Knapp Ranch just north of Port Orford.
The Brookings Harbor School board agreed to renew Superintendent Brian Hodge’s contract, but not without disagreeing about the process in which his annual job review was done.
The board spent several hours at Wednesday regular board meeting debating whether the format used to evaluate him had been actually agreed upon in prior meetings, and whether the board followed its policies in evaluating him.
Curry County commissioners decided Wednesday to delay distributing “advisory” questions with the upcoming May ballot, but instead to wait and send them in a mass mailing later in the year so as to not confuse voters.
Advisory ballot questions are basically surveys questioning voters if they are in favor of municipalities pursuing certain issues or asking for their opinion about issues elected officials might be interested in placing on a future ballot.
