HR Council Approves IGA With Port

Hood River City Councilors approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Port of Hood River to allow the City to build a new pipe on Port land to put treated effluent from the municipal wastewater treatment plant farther into the Columbia River in exchange for the City helping to do some path work.  City Manager Steve Wheeler says a pedestrian path will be built on top of where the pipe is installed at the end of the Hook.  The pipe is being moved to put treated effluent farther into the Columbia River into a better mixing zone as a result of a the creation of the sandbar at the mouth of the Hood River a few years ago.  In other City business, the Council tabbed Victor Pavlenko to serve on the municipal planning commission.
