Colfax city council meets short Monday
July 23, 2020
COLFAX – The Colfax city council met by Google Meet computer and phone access Monday night, covering a few items in a brief meeting while taking no action.
Police Chief Bruce Blood mentioned that Colfax's third officer, Joe McCollum, will return to the job July 27 after a deployment with the U.S. Air Force (aiding COVID-19 testing in Yakima). Blood noted that this will make it so the department can put a city officer back on the night shift.
The city contracts with the Whitman County Sheriff's Office to cover certain shifts, while it seeks to hire two new officers.
