Notice of Road Closure July 2018

posted Jun 28, 2018, 4:42 PM by Jill Nielson

Location:  "A" Street between 6th Street and 7th Street, Vader Washington

 

Beginning the week of July 2nd, 2018 the A Street Improvement project construction will require unanticipated temporary road closures on A Street between 6th and 7th Streets. These road closures were not in the original plans for the project, however, unexpected conditions in the sub-grade (layers under the existing pavement) of the roadway have been discovered which will require intermittent and temporary road closures in order to properly complete the project.

 

The road closures will affect drive up access to the front of the Post Office building and other businesses and residences along the affected route. The Post Office will still be accessible to vehicles by the alley behind (to the West) the building, as well as to pedestrian traffic.

 

There will be two types of closures to A Street. The first closures will be temporary, meaning that the roadway will close only during working hours (7am thru 5pm) and will be reopened throughout the evening and early morning. These temporary closures will be intermittent over a period of a week or so in early July.

 

The second type of closure will also be temporary but will be 24 hours at a time and is expected to last for a period of 3-4 days in a row. The exact dates for this temporary closure have yet to be determined but are anticipated to be around the middle of July. An additional notice will be published when the exact dates are determined.

 

This notice is intended to meet the requirements for road closure notices as stated in the Revised Code of Washington 47.48.020.

Council Vacancy - Volunteer Needed

posted Feb 22, 2017, 3:42 PM by Jill Nielson

Sadly, Council member Ruth Crear resigned her position early in February this year. She serves the community in several capacities and we thank her for all her efforts as a stellar City Councillor. Her resignation leaves Council Position #5 open and in need of filling. The remaining members of Council have 90 days to appoint a resident to fill the open seat. The appointee would fill the position until the results of the November 2017 election is certified. At that point the position will be filled by the winner of the election for the remaining 2 years of the term. 
Any member of the public who is a property owner in the Vader City limits for at least one year, and who is a registered voter is eligible to fill the position. Let a member of the City Council, the Mayor or the City Clerk/Treasurer know if you are interested in filling the position. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn the processes of city government and to give back to your community.
If you have any questions, please call 360-295-3222.
