Work at Port treatment plant progresses


Port of Sunnyside Commissioner St. Clair Woodworth (second from right) receives an award this past Monday night, honoring his nearly two decades of service as a commissioner. Amber Hansen, right, made the presentation on behalf of the port as commissioners Jeff Matson (left) and Arnold Martin look on. Woodworth was defeated in the 2009 general election and Monday night marked his final study session as a port commissioner.

Work on the Port of Sunnyside's dewatering facility at its treatment plant is progressing at a rapid pace, port commissioners learned at their December general meeting this past Monday night.

That's according to Jay Hester, the port's property and development manager.

Hester asked commissioners to approve a change order request regarding the work at the facility.

Hester told commissioners that work is set to commence this week in constructing a building for a new screw press.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the contractor hired to build the building is asking for an extension. The building was to be completed late next month.

Commissioners will consider the request at tonight's meeting.
