SEQUIM: More than half of school levy ballots already in

Clallam County elections officials had received 8,822 mail-in ballots by Monday from Sequim School District voters casting ballots in the three-year, $8.2 million maintenance and operations levy election.

That represents more than 51 percent of the total 17,230 ballots mailed to district voters, elections officials said.

And it is more than the 5,849 ballots required to have the levy election validated.

But Superintendent Mike Joyner said Monday night that it is too early to gauge the success of the levy effort.

During the Sequim School Board meeting, Joyner said the district “may be slightly ahead of the pace”‘ of a previous levy measure that failed.

Crews work on Thursday to dismantle the loading dock at the site of the former Rayonier pulp mill in Port Angeles. Workers began removing about 800 concrete dock panels this week as a step toward dismantling the 6-acre pier at the former Rayonier property 2 miles east of downtown Port Angeles. The target date for completion is July, while more than 5,000 creosote-treated pilings will not be taken out at least until 2023 as part of the overall environmental cleanup of the 75-acre former industrial site's uplands and adjacent harbor waters, a process overseen by the state Department of Ecology and paid for by property owner Rayonier Advanced Materials.
