City seeking weather tower funding

The City of Sunnyside will be submitting an application for funding from the Yakima County SIED (Supporting Investments in Economic Development) Fund to install an automated weather observation system at the Sunnyside Municipal Airport.

At this past Monday night's city council meeting, the application was presented by Jed Crowther of the Port of Sunnyside and Interim City Manager Frank Sweet. The proposal calls for a 30-33 foot tower on port property near the airport that will provide real-time weather information.

The resolution authorizing the city manager to submit the application was passed unanimously.
