A new Cosmopolis Municipal Building construction has been placed on hold and delayed says Cosmopolis Mayor Kyle Pauley due to cost of lumber.

Pauley says that Due to circumstances outside of their control, the City of Cosmopolis has made the difficult decision to delay the start of construction on the Municipal Building project.

SEATTLE - The 13th Coast Guard District has implemented a groundbreaking technology to assist mariners in distress on the waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Across Washington and Oregon, mariners can provide vital location information to Coast Guard rescue crews from their smartphones without having to download an application. In addition to common life-saving devices known to mariners, such as Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB's) and VHF radios, the Coast Guard now has the i911 application as an additional tool to provide lifesaving information from a mariner's cell phone.
