Sauvie Island Call for Action

From Don at ORCOBA:

Hey everyone…particularly Sauvie Island beachgoers:

In addition to the staffing cuts being made by the Oregon State Police, potentially affecting the seasonal OSP officer position assigned to Sauvie Island (see a previous posting on this subject), it seems Columbia County is now discussing eliminating the funding for Deputy Larry Weaver’s position, effective this year, and more letters need to be written,

For those who aren’t familiar with Larry, he has served on Sauvie Island for the last 13 years and knows it intimately. He is very supportive of our group, and the preservation of Collins as a clothing-optional beach. It would be a huge loss to not have him out here.

The addresses and people to write to concerning the Columbia County Sheriff’s position on Sauvie Island are:

Rita Bernhard, Chair
Board of Commissioners
Columbia County Courthouse
230 Strand Street
St Helens Oregon 97051-0010
Email: bernhar@co.columbia.or.us


Sheriff Philip W. Derby
Columbia County Sheriff’s Office
901 Port Avenue
St Helens Oregon 97051
Email: derbyp@co.columbia.or.us

The County Commissioners are discussing this matter presently, so swift action is necessary.
Thank you!
