<br />02/21/2019 MINUTES 1 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />COMMISSIONERS' MINUTES <br />KITTITAS COUNTY, WASHINGTON <br />901 EAST 7TH AVE – ARMORY A <br />SPECIAL MEETING <br /> <br />THURSDAY 9:00 A.M. FEBRUARY 21, 2019 <br /> <br />Board members present: Chairman Cory Wright; Vice-Chairman Brett <br />Wachsmith & Commissioner Laura Osiadacz. <br /> <br />Others: Julie Kjorsvik, Clerk of the Board; Mark Cook, Public Works <br />Director/Interim Engineer; Peggy L. Morache, Executive Director of FISH <br />Community Food Bank; and 5 members of the public. <br /> <br />SPECIAL MEETING FISH COMMUNITY FOOD BANK COMMISSIONERS <br /> <br />At 9:00 a.m. Chairman Wright opened a Special Meeting to consider a <br />proposal from the FISH Community Food Bank. <br /> <br />Peggy Morache, Executive Director of the FISH Community Food Bank, <br />explained how there was an urgent need for them to find a new location <br />for their meal services including Senior Nutrition, dining area and <br />administrative offices by June 2019. They have reached out to another <br />church that is looking at the possibility of allowing them to <br />temporarily relocate so those services are not interrupted. She noted <br />they have a very good relationship with Mercer Creek Church and there is <br />no animosity between the two of them, but both organizations have <br />reached a point of outgrowing their needs. The remaining Food Bank and <br />Food Pantry must be off of the Mercer Creek Church campus by January <br />2020. She said they were requesting assistance from Kittitas County <br />including the use of the building adjacent to the airport that is <br />currently used by Elmview, or approximately 2.5 acres of land where they <br />could construct a new building including a commercial kitchen; space for <br />social service agencies for one-on-one meetings to assist FISH clients; <br />a permanent location for Ellensburg Cold Weather Shelter that would <br />provide shower and laundry space for guests; as well as education <br />programs on topics related to cultivating better eating habits, healthy <br />life styles, budgeting and other quality of life issues. They are <br />anticipating mobile pantries to serve the Upper County and Kittitas <br />areas, as well as a site on the Central Washington University campus. <br /> <br />Chairman Wright said he understood the value of the services FISH <br />provides to Kittitas County but explained the reasons why he would not <br />be in favor of relocating out at the airport area. He said when the area <br />of the airport is built, it would be industrial and the FISH Food Bank
