    that provides a place to put the Caboose.
    She will meet with them on Monday Dec 5th, to review and sign the contract.

    OCT. 2011 UPDATES:
  • The Caboose was scheduled to be moved here on the 18th,
    But because of an extensive contract received last week
    from the Parks and Recreation, we have had to reconsider their offer
    and are currently working with the County Commissioners to relocate
    the Caboose onto County Property.
    We are hopeful that an agreement will be had next week and we can
    Move our project forward.
    We would like to express our thanks to Commissioner Dave Sauter for coming down yesterday and reviewing the site and supporting our project.
    8/18/2011

    Members, Mike Schlangen, Cheryl Steindorf, Carl Coolige, Johny Clarence, and John Campbell met
    with Mike Canon - Klckickitat Economic Development - and the County Commissioners to
    update them and gather support for the Caboose project.
    Most of the logistics and details have been worked out and they are very supportive of our project.
    The next step is to remove the track from the PUD yard and prepare the site to set the caboose on. The commissioners are looking into options to help with the insurance and
    an agreement for a 40 year lease on the trail site is looking really good.
