Commissioner Keith Goehner is keeping a close eye on Olympia. As the special Legislative session
gets under way, state budget cuts and the Town Toyota Center debt crisis loom large. The TTC debt must be paid by
Thursday, December 1st. Local legislators are trying to broker a deal to get a loan fromt eh state to avoid
defaulting on the TTC. But time is very tight, and default could have negative impacts for the county and towns
that signed on witht the Public Facilities District. Goehner said Wenatchee should firmly have ownership of debt
But there is some better news for jail occupancy, with contracts signed that will
guarantee some revenue.
