Lincoln County Commissioners Monday learned that 16 temporary mobile-home dwellings have been moved onto a spot on tribal lands right off Logan Road, next to Chinook Winds Hotel Casino north of Lincoln City. The units are slowly getting inhabited by what could be called Echo Mountain Fire refugees who expect to move in and live in them for up to 18 months. The dwellings are described as having very nice interiors, roomy, plenty of elbow room and ready for occupancy.
Meanwhile, Lincoln City officials are easing into a plan to slowly get city employees moved back in to their office areas around the city – especially City Hall. The city council was informed Monday night that a gradual re-entry plan is being drawn up for city workers who were veritably kicked out of their work areas when the Covid-19 virus hit town. But as more and more vaccines are administered they’ll want to re-occupy City Hall – all-be-it very slowly – while making sure no one is carrying a Covid-19 infection with them. It’s quite common that some people who are infected with the virus don’t even know they’ve got it. Testing is City Hall’s only defense.
