(GOLD BAR, WA.) -- The City of Gold Bar got a new leader at the Tuesday City Council meeting when Lee Hodo was sworn in as Gold Bar Mayor replacing Linda Loen.
A crowd showed up to welcome Mayor Hodo to his new job.
Mayor Hodo brings a wealth of relevant experience to the job of mayor, having been a council member since February of 2013, serving with the two previous mayors. So, he has examples of how to be mayor or maybe how not to be mayor. Or maybe both.
The water system was a topic of interest with Darla O'Connor of the USDA making a presentation on what financial services they offered for water capital projects. There was substantial citizen discussion on the water system.
Mayor Hodo noted that he had sent a letter to PUD with issues raised about the Gold Bar water system in anticipation of a presentation by them.
The Council provided support for a proposed Farmers Market at Gateway Park at the corner of Orchard and 5th Street.
Office Manager Denise Beaston informed the attendees about the upcoming Easter Egg Hunt onSaturday, March 26, at Gold Bar Elementary.
