12-hundred hundred people filled out the survey and 47 percent want to remove the Newport Avenue Dam and 43 percent want to keep it.

 

City Councilor Mark Capell heard the presentation.

 

"I'm not surpirsed. I think the community is pretty well divided on what they think we ought to  do either dredge and keep the dam or remove the dam and turn it into a river. I think there's still a lot of work to be done to try and make that decision as a community."

 

Capell fees the community needs to know if Pacific Power plans in the near future to get rid of the dam.

 

He believes the issue will ultimately go to the voters to decide which direction we should take.
