FALLS CITY — The city of Falls City has formed an Economic Development Committee and its first task will be to design an event around the August 2017 solar eclipse.
Viewing of the eclipse is predicted to be the best in Oregon and Falls City is in prime position to host people looking for a place to take it all in, city officials said.
City councilors Tony Meier, Gerald Melin and residents Patti Sample and Rose Bajorins applied to serve on the committee, giving it a quorum. The Falls City City Council approved the appointments Thursday, but there still are three open seats to be filled.
The council also appointed Sample to serve on the city’s budget committee, filling the last vacancy.
