County sunsets emergency declaration


Last updated 2/23/2023 at 11am

DAVENPORT — The Lincoln County Commissioners approved a motion sunsetting a local declaration of a State of Emergency regarding COVID-19 at the Commissioners regular meeting Tuesday, Feb. 21.

The motion came after the county realized it still technically had a State of Emergency in place. Gov. Jay Inslee ended the statewide State of Emergency effective Nov. 1, 2022. Most virus-related mandates and recommendations statewide were eased in March 2022.

Other business conducted by the Commissioners Tuesday included an agreement to remodel the main bathrooms at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds, an appointment of Sue Hatten as permanent director of the Alcohol and Drug Center effective March 1 and budget extensions for public safety, Sheriff’s Office and Public Health budgets.

Glen Stockwell of Ritzville made an appearance at the meeting but didn’t speak during the public meeting while The Record-Times was present. Stockwell was convicted of assaulting State Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, in an Oct. 2021 incident.
