City Plans Community Building Update
By Jake Morgan, staff writer
WINLOCK – Don Bradshaw has wasted no time approaching a wide range of projects and city improvements during the first month of his new term as mayor.
Bradshaw announced that Winlock has started work on repairs to S.E. First Street, is planning a major overhaul to the city's wastewater treatment plant and is currently soliciting bids for bonded electrical, plumbing and carpentry services to overhaul the outdated systems in the Community Building.
In stark contrast to previous city council meetings from 2016 and 2017 that often featured lengthly public debates and little action, Bradshaw addressed the near-capacity audience that filled the council chambers on Jan. 22 for nearly an hour with little input or comment from the public, city staff or other council members.
The 76-year-old mayor said he hates hearing rumors and invited anyone with questions to stop by his office during the week, citing his open-door policy. Bradshaw said he spends 40 to 50 hours a week working as mayor.
