The Pasco City Council, in the Regular Meeting held on Tuesday, February 18, had several items up for consideration, including:
- The Council awarded a $4.7 million dollar bid to Chervenell Construction of Kennewick for the construction of the new Fire Station No. 83. The new fire station, to be located near the water towers off Road 76, will decrease response times to the vast majority of residents and business within the Station No. 83 response area, enhance the safety of the crews stationed at the facility, and allow for fire and emergency medical response to a large portion of the Broadmoor area within the accepted response time. The current aging and undersized Fire Station No. 83 on Road 68 south of I-182 will be repurposed for other City use, such as Public Works operations.
- March 16 has been set as the date for a public hearing on vacation of City right-of-way in the Washington Addition area in east Pasco. Empire Bros. Construction, the applicant, has submitted a proposal to vacate portions of these rights-of-way within the Addition in order to facilitate platting of a residential subdivision.
- The Council presented a proclamation honoring February as “Black History Month” to Mr. Vanis Daniels on behalf of the African American Community Cultural and Educational Society.
