MOSCOW — Members of the Moscow City Council voted 5-1 late Monday night to provide water service across the state line to the proposed Hawkins Companies shopping center.Members also agreed to drop the city’s appeal against Hawkins’ attempts to secure its own water rights to drill wells. The action, taken shortly before midnight, stems from an agreement hammered out last week during 22 hours or closed-door mediation in Spokane. The agreement calls for the city to provide a total of 65 acre-feet of water annually to the development in Whitman County.
Earlier Monday, Whitman County commission passed a preliminary development agreement to partner with Hawkins on the 700,000-square-foot retail shopping mall it plans to build west of the Idaho state border.
