City Council Meeting

Tonight I went to the City Council meeting, and I was happy I did, because there was so much going on.

As I came up to the RACC, Shawn Donaghy of C Tran was speaking about the new Ridgefield-themed bus. Look for it on the streets of Clark County – it’s very impressive.

The other side of the bus has photos of our sports teams – sorry I didn’t get a picture of that.

Then, inside the building, Mayor Don Stose proclaimed this month as Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Toni Bonacci, owner of the Ridgefield Raptors presented a framed memento of this summer’s games, with a picture taken Opening Day, sample tickets, and the line up of the two teams.

The Raptors were popular – average attendance this summer was 1200 people, and 68 seasonal employees were hired. Plus it sounds like the players loved being in Ridgefield.

Bill Bauman talked about the success of his Green Bag Project, which collects food bi monthly to take to Neighbors Helping Neighbors. There were 480 food donors, and over two tons of food has been donated in the last two years.

Don Walkinshaw, Director of Public Safety for the Cowlitz Tribe presented a check  to the Ridgefield Police Department for use of some of our equipment.

All-in-all, a full evening! It’s too bad more people don’t attend these meetings – they are very informative.
