Army given ultimatum on Camp Bonneville cleanup County says pay for it, or no contract renewal By Stephanie Rice Columbian (WA) June 1, 2011Clark County officials have given the Army a July 14 deadline to commit to continue paying for the extensive cleanup of Camp Bonneville.
Otherwise, the county will not renew a contract with the Army to oversee the cleanup, Commissioner Marc Boldt said Wednesday, and plans to use the property as a regional park may be put off indefinitely.
Boldt told Commissioners Tom Mielke and Steve Stuart that negotiations with the Army, which used the 3,840-acre site in east county as an artillery range and training area from 1909 to 1995, have stalled.
