 $10 million development just part of Yurok Tribe’s vision for town

Hotel options just got a whole lot classier in Klamath. 
On Tuesday, the Yurok Tribe opened the doors of its Redwood Hotel Casino, billed as the only hotel casino property in Redwood National and State Parks, and even with a soft opening, the Holiday Inn Express hotel was nearly sold out on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The luxurious 60-room hotel, adorned in themes inspired by the Klamath River and Yurok culture, booked at least 20 rooms on the first night it was open, including guests from Germany, Korea and Canada.

Bleak report on city sewer debt

There’s good news and bad news in regard to the city’s massive $44 million sewer system loan. The bad news: The city doesn’t have enough money to make its annual payment. The good news: Assistance could be on the way. 

A bleak report on the Crescent City sewer’s debt situation has the city requesting financial assistance from the state for the loan’s $2.2 million annual debt service payments, $1.1 million of which is an interest payment that the city can’t pay, putting the loan in technical default. City Manager Gene Palazzo said that the assistance request, which involves putting the city on a workout plan that aims to lower the interest payments to 0 percent as well as move to a graduated payment plan, has received “positive feedback” from the state, but for now “they haven’t approved anything.”

Gitlin calls for chair to resign

The county battle over public prayer and placing items on meeting agendas continued on Tuesday when a Del Norte County supervisor called for the resignation of the Board of Supervisors’ chairman.

“Do you really want to do this?” Board Chairman David Finigan asked his colleague Roger Gitlin, who during the meeting’s public comment period called for Finigan’s resignation as chairman. 

“Chairman Finigan, the supervisor from District 1 calls for your immediate resignation as chairman of the Board of Supervisors,” Gitlin read from a prepared document. “Since 5th District Supervisor Finigan assumed the position of chairman there has been a significant erosion to the integrity of the board. The delusion of integrity and cooperative bipartisan effectiveness is directly attributable to the evident failure of objective and neutral leadership of current Chairman Finigan.”
