The Depoe Bay had a rather light agenda this week producing a nice compact little meeting.
First off the fella who was runner-up to be appointed to Skip Hoitink’s city council seat has “hung in there.” Although losing his bid to be a city councilor, he turned right around and applied to sit on the city’s planning commission. And this time he came in first. Bob Lewis, who recently moved to Depoe Bay with his wife after spending many years in southern Alaska, said he wants to get involved in the community just like he did up in the Great White North. Lewis is a retired businessman and likes to stay busy, it appears. The vote of the council to appoint Lewis to the planning commission was unanimous which triggered a round of applause
And the city council decided to apply for a grant so they can fix up the harbor dock electrical panel and storage shed. The council went for $23,000 and should know in a few months whether they got the money.
