Army pledges $20 million to continue Camp Bonneville cleanup Commissioners expected to OK deal Tuesday By Stephanie Rice Columbian (WA) August 1, 2011The Army has agreed to continue paying for the cleanup of Camp Bonneville and Clark County commissioners are expected to approve a new contract Tuesday.
