The Chelan City Council has a regularly scheduled workshop this afternoon- at which time they were going to discuss short term rentals in relation to the Comprehensive Plan update. However, their focus of attention took a sharp turn last week when they learned there was an effort underway to possibly re-direct funding intended to the State Route 150- No-See-Um roundabout intersection to another county road project.

Chelan Mayor, Mike Cooney, says that idea surfaced after construction bids for the No-See-Um intersection (a $7 million project) came in slightly over budget…
