Winter Storm Damage

Neighbors continue to clean up after winter flooding, high water, and storms. The latest information from Gordon McCaw, Director of Emergency Management for Tillamook County “If your Tillamook County home, business, or automobile sustained damage from winter storms, which will primarily be flood damage, please send me an email and provide me your address, a contact name and telephone number, the damage and include pictures if you can.” gmccraw@co.tillamook.or.us

Roads

Clyde Barnhill coordinates matters around roads in Nedonna Beach.  Many have have questions or concerns about roads and culverts in Nedonna Beach.  NBNA Board members have met in the past with Liane Welch of Tillamook County Public Works Department.  You will find a document attached about responsibility for roads in Nedonna Beach.  The NBNA has maintained unpaved roads over the past few years and will have graveled roads graded this spring.  Gravel piles are available at the south end of David and on Geneva at Sunset for filling pot holes.    Individual neighbors have contacted Welch this winter to express their individual concerns.  You can reach her via email at lwelch@co.tillamook.or.us.
