Lincoln City approves scholarships for business workshops

With Lincoln County holding the ignominious title of “highest unemployment rate” in Oregon for much of the Pandemic, and with two of the hardest-hit business sectors – dining and lodging – being so prevalent in the Lincoln City economy, it is well past time for at least a glimmer of good news for Lincoln City businesses.

  1. I was wondering why no one was at the meeting. This meeting was very important to me so my girlfriend Lisa and I had to go to the chamber meeting hall.

    I was appalled that no one wrote an email to the City Council. There were so many people that complained about the lack evacuation information but only 2 people came to the meeting. I know the time of day was a factor for those who work but the retirement community should have been at this meeting.

    My moto is……if you complain about something………do something about it!

  2. All of the meetings are on the City website. There is a meeting on Monday at 10 am and one at 6 pm. Please attend or at least email your City Council and let them know your concerns..

  3. Had NO internet,I’ve been to many council meetings,but since I do not have a “smart” phone,had no way to know about this “special” meeting!!!

  4. self righteous and condescending. I’ve been to plenty of council meetings and 10am is ludicrous.
    Maybe this snob goes when it suits her, but I’ve not seen any “regulars”
    at any meeting, except for the newspaper guy.
    We have gotten a law passed, and a stop sign at a dangerous intersection.
    What have you done?
