Bruce Henne replaces George Brady on Pateros Council


PATEROS – The Pateros City Council swore in its newest member during opening proceedings of its regular monthly meeting on July 17. Bruce Henne took the oath of office from city clerk-treasurer Kerri Wilson and replaces the late George Brady, former mayor and council member who passed away on June 17 following a brief illness.

Okanogan County Undersheriff Dave Yarnell provided details of an arrest of an individual earlier that day at Pateros Mall on charges of lewd and indecent exposure. The suspect was booked into the Okanogan County Jail.

Fire Chief Kerry Heen reported that the Douglas-Okanogan County Fire District 15 took delivery of a new class A engine located at the Pateros Fire Hall.

The council approved a resolution accepting the professional services agreement with Varela & Associates for engineering services for the downtown Pateros Mall predesign project.  City administrator Jord Wilson said the first half of the project was for a consultant’s market study on how to facilitate economic activity. The second phase will commence the remodel plan for the mall.
