4 The Sun, Wednesday, February 6, 1991 SHERIFF Continued from Page 1 Willamina resident and pastor of the Sheridan Baptist Church, "why not go with what we know is working up the street?" Others urged the council to con- tract with the sheriffs office for reasons of security and effective- ness, claiming that Willamina police fail to curb crime, particularly theft and drug sales. According to Willamina resident Steve Bobb, the same young people can be observed on city streets night after night, selling drugs and steal- ing from automobiles. Willamina police are unable to stem the crime and are even afraid of the criminals, Bobb charged. "Do we just have to live with that?" Bobb asked. "Is this all we can expect of the police? And if not, how much longer do we have to put up with it?" Bobb and others asserted that crime had dropped in Sheridan following arrival of sheriff's depu- ties Those assertions drew the ire of councilor Vic Branson. "I guarantee they're stealing things in Sheridan," Branson said. "And you can buy drugs there, too." What difference does the agency make? Branson asked critics. "A brown car is the same as a white car," be said. "They both have a gun and badge. Are kids more afraid of a sheriff than of a city policeman?" Councilors Twila Hill and Leon Alger defended efforts of local offi- eel,s, pointing out that the depart- ment is understaffed and that the late Chief Tietjen was injured in an off-duty attempt to arrest a drunken mall. Councilors resisted wessure to vote or to state their positions, assigning the contract for review at the Feb. 5 police committee meet- ing. In other business: Steel Bridge area annexation. The council agreed to consider a detailed outline of steps and proce- dures necessary to prepare annexa- tion of territory south of the Steel Bridge. The outline will be submit- ted by Frank Walker, a Monmouth planning engineer employed by developers who intend to build a golf course and other fncilities along Steel Bridge Road south of Willa- mina. Walker explained that annexation of the area is desirable as a means to draw motorists into Willamina from Highway 18. Annexation will open the land to more intensive use and different zoning, and will allow extension of city utilities, all pres- ently limited by the conditional use permit in effecL Walker estimated the annexation process could take up to two years. His outline of a finished report projected a cost of $8,370. Walker and the council agreed that the cost should be home by developers plan- ning projects in the area. Economic Improvement District advisory committee. The council appointed Scott Cummins, Betty Frownfelter, Greg Home, Bob Burr and Kay Burke to the EID advisory committee as required by the EID ordinance. The group will recom- mend use of tax funds raised by the EID. Nominations were made by the Willamina Business Group. Economic development site report. Councilor Gary Wooden reported that state economic devel- opment representatives will travel to California next month to begin efforts to attract businesses to tim- ber-dependent communities in Ore- gon. Two Willamina sites--the saw filing shop on Yamhill Street and a vacant seven-acre parcel of city land adjacent to Hnddleston Park--are among locations to be pitched to businesses, Wooden said. Price of the saw shop is listed at $180,000 and the city property at a negotiable $25,000. "We should get a bite on that," Wooden said. "That's got to be some of the most reasonable prop- erty in Oregon." Sanitary service contract. The council agreed to review its pro- posed franchise agreement with West County Sanitary Service and to meet soon with owner Dural Funk. If adopted, the new franchise agreement would generate up to $3,000 in revenue for the city.
