s on The annual independent audit of the city of Pateros by the state auditor for the year 2000 showed that the city complied with state laws and regulations and its own policies and procedures in the areas examined. The City complied with federal requirements for the Community Development Block Grant it received from the state Department of Community. Trade and Economic Development. The audit also found the city's financial statements were complete and accurate. The city of Pateros was incorporated in 1913 and has a population of approximately 630. The city is administered by a mayor-council form of government. There are five elected council members and an inde- pendently elected mayor. The city operated on a $1.3 million annual budget in 2000. Its five employees provide an array of services including water, sewer, garbage, police, public improvements, plan. ning and economic development. Elected officials serving during the audit period were: Mayor - Carol Mooney; Council members - Linda Heaton. Brian Hicks. Gall A. Howe, Nancy Zimmerman. Kenneth C. McDannald.

Actually, Chamber president Chris Fred asked for ideas for a two-day event, something for a weekend or Friday and Saturday. People who have suggestions can contact Freel or other Chamber officers. In other business at the general membership meeting, members voted to charge $20 to food and arts and crafts vendors during the citywide garage sale scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, September I and 2. Chamber members will distrib- ute maps from the Visitor's Infor- mation Center, but they will not have a food booth this year. Maps will be available at the VIC from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The park will be opened to food vendors iflstead, and arts and crafts vendors are being included for the firsl time. People who want to participate but don't live in Pateros can rent space in the park. The garage sale will include a trea- sure hunt; people will be looking for little Styrofoam treasure chests, hid- den throughout town, and can turn Cant'd from page 1 aped. In the 30-plus years since then, the park has become surrounded by Washington Department of Wildlife lands, and is not considered a good site for intensive developme,t. Keeping the park and trying to enhance it as a wildlife viewing area was considered, but the staff report said PUD officials did not think the park would get much use without places to stay overnight. Other options include expansion at Alta Lake near Pateros, Pearrygin Lake near Winthrop or Sun Lakes near Coulee City. Another possi- bility is the purchase of land on Douglas County shore of the Co- lumbia River, about a mile from the Brewster Bridge. People who have comments on how the money should be spent can sub- mit them to the commission at Bat 42650, Olympia, WA 98504-2650. winter them in at the VIC for prizes from local merchants. The city of Pateros usually re- quires a permit for a garage sale, but the permits and fees will be waived on that weekend---only, however, for people who register at city hall. Registration is open now, and will continue until the last week in August. Fred announced that a bulletin board is ready to be installed outside the visitor's center. It will be mounted the south side of the building, next to the VIC entrance.

Hirst said the grants were administered by the water resources department, and the commissioners expected the department heads to fulfill their duties. But the commissioners have the ultimate responsibility, Hirst said. They are elected to oversee county management, and they should do that, he said. "We must be more careful, and this year, we are going to be more careful." The county has hired Jim Weed, the former sheriff, as executive administrator.
