Hood River County Library District board meets Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Jeanne Marie Gaulke meeting room at Hood River Library, 502 State St. (In case of construction on State Street, parking is available across the street at the Hood River News lot.)
On the agenda is a report by Harley Judd, teen services librarian, and reports by Director Buzzy Nielsen, including financial report, and Friends of the Library and the Library Foundation.
Hood River City Council holds a special meeting, in executive session, on Jan. 23, at 5 p.m., to review candidates for the city manager position.
The executive session is closed to the public, as this is a personnel matter.
The council expects to receive 8-15 recommended files, via the search firm it has hired. From that list, the council hopes to reduce it to five or so finalists who will be invited to Hood River for interviews.
The final day to apply for the position was Jan. 12, and by last Friday 33 candidates had submitted their applications; the total is expected to nearly double.

The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
