County funding for Enterprise Center doesn’t see a vote

The Gateway Enterprise Center Project took a hit yesterday when county funding did not receive a second during the Grays Harbor County Commissioners meeting.

Commissioner Vickie Raines made a motion to pass the interagency agreement with the City of Aberdeen in support of the project and worth $55,000.

After she made the motion there was no second.

Commissioner Frank Gordon cited opinions he said he received from residents who said the center would not fit with downtown Aberdeen.

Commissioner Raines said she believes that Gordon changed his opinion on the issue because of a personal exchange the two of them had.

Commissioner Wes Cormier, who has been opposed to county funding of the project, said it was because it was not in the County’s 2016 budget and that he does not believe the county should be involved at this time because of other issues the county has.

The issue may be brought up at a later date but it was not said whether it would or when it might be brought back to the commissioners for a decision.
