HR County Proceeds With Kingsley Campground Project

Hood River County Commissioners voted to proceed with phases one and two of a rebuild and expansion of the Kingsley Campground, subject to finding funding.  The proposal calls for 50 campsites of various types to be constructed after Farmers Irrigation District completes expansion of the Kingsley Reservoir that will flood the current campground.  Currently the campground operates in the black with 24 spaces and no host, and Commission Chair Ron Rivers points out the expansion would add host spaces that would allow a more professional operation.  The County will be seeking grant funds to build the campground, taking advantage of Farmers Irrigation District replacement compensation as a match.  In other business, Commissioners approved ending the $22 a month billing assessment to users in the Windmaster Sewer Service District at the end of November.  Ownership of the sewer line will be transferred to the City of Hood River as planned in the 2008 agreement that led to its construction.
