Officers and committee chairs are elected from within the council by council members during annual reorganization in July. Newly elected council members are seated during the reorganization meeting. The reservation is divided into four districts: Inchelium, Keller, Nespelem and Omak, each with representatives on the council.

Ferry County Ferry County, named for Gov. Ferry, was carved out of Stevens County in 1899. Ferry County is bordered to its north by British Columbia and Lincoln County to its south. Okanogan County lies to the west and Stevens County to the east. The Colville Confederated Tribe owns the southern portion of the county and the northern portion is largely part

of the Colville National Forest. Less than 18 percent of the land in Ferry County is privately owned. Republic, the county seat, is the largest – and only – city in Ferry County. Ferry County ranks ninth in the state in terms of land area and 38th in the state for population density. Outlook The economy of Ferry County has remained static with little change over time. The lack of economic growth is reflected in slow population growth, an older than average population, higher than average government employment and little or negative real employment growth.

County profiles Even with the opening of a new gold mine in 2008, Ferry County continues to be plagued by limited transportation and little private land. These issues limit growth of resource extraction as well as overall economic activity. As the nation and state continue to recover from a painful and persistent recession, Ferry County is likely to continue to experience sluggish growth. A recovering housing market will have a positive impact on the northeast Washington economy. Gold prices continue to be high, encouraging further mining activities. It is likely that some government employment will weaken as budget reductions are made. Any reductions will create noticeable employment ripples in a county with over 50 percent of its jobs in government. Industry employment Ferry County is a small labor market with fewer than 1,700 jobs located in the county. Consequently, a large number (about 26.3 percent) of the employed residents work in jobs or for firms located outside the county. It is likely that tribal employment in the southern part of Ferry County affects the overall numbers as well. Ferry County averaged 1,570 nonfarm jobs in 2011, down from the 2010 total of 1,620. Industry employment by age and gender The largest jobholder age group in Ferry County in 2010 was the 55 and older group at 28.4 percent. This percentage was closely followed by job holders aged 45 to 54, with 25.8 percent of the work force. In 2010, women held 50.2 percent and men held 49.8 percent of the jobs in Ferry County. There were substantial differences in gender dominance by industry. • Male-dominated industries

included construction (90.6 percent), agriculture (79.5 percent) and utilities (69 percent). • Female-dominated industries included finance and insurance (92.3 percent), healthcare and social assistance (72.9 percent) and accommodations and food service (72.9 percent). Population Ferry County’s population was 7,551 in 2010. It grew at a rate of 4 percent from 2000 to 2010 compared to the state’s growth rate of 14.1 percent. The largest city in Ferry County is Republic (1,073 in 2010). Age, gender and ethnicity Ferry County has an older population than does the state. • Those 65 and older made up 18.9 percent of Ferry County’s 2010 population, compared to the state’s 12.3 percent. • Residents under 18 years of age made up 19.8 percent of Ferry County’s population, compared to 23.5 percent for the state. • Those under 5 years old made up 5.1 percent of Ferry County’s population, compared to 6.5 percent for the state. • Females in the 2010 county population estimate made up 48.3 percent, compared to 50.2 percent for the state. Ferry County showed less diversity in 2010 than did the state in all racial/ethnic categories except American Indians and Alaska Natives. Educational attainment Most of Ferry County residents age 25 and older (88.67 percent) were high school graduates, which compares with 89.6 percent of Washington state’s residents and 85 percent of U.S. residents over the period 2006 to 2010. Those with a bachelor’s degree or higher made up 16.7 percent of Ferry County residents age 25 and older,

compared to 31 percent of state residents and 27.9 percent of U.S. residents over the same period. —Employment Security Department, The Local Employment Dynamics, U.S. Census Bureau

Okanogan County Okanogan County borders Canada on the north. The Columbia River Basin and Lake Roosevelt form its southern and eastern borders, and the North Cascade Mountains form its western border. It the largest county in the state at 5,268 square miles, but has the fifth fewest residents per square mile. It is an agricultural county with many outdoor recreation activities that draw many tourists. The Colville Confederated Tribes occupy much of Okanogan County and part of Ferry County. As of January 2012, the Colville Confederated Tribes consists of 9,365 descendants of 12 aboriginal tribes. Outlook Over the past 20 years, Okanogan County has had a slow but steady annual average growth rate of 0.6 percent. The county finally recovered from the 2001 recession in 2006, only to be confronted with the Great Recession the very next year, causing further drops in employment. From 2000 to 2011, there was an annual average growth rate of -0.7 percent. Even with the last decade of struggle, the future growth in the tourism industry is showing promise. When the recession initially hit in 2007, Okanogan County stayed insulated from the initial downturn and managed to post growth in 2008. Now that disposable incomes are recovering, leisure and hospitality are

starting to show signs of growth. Manufacturing has been edging up recently along with construction and mining activities. Overall, the goodsproducing sector is showing growth recently, and expansion is expected in various areas in Okanogan County. Employment levels are not making strong gains. Industry employment Total non-farm employment peaked in 2008 with an annual average employment level of 12,780. There was a decline each year through 2011, when total non-farm employment was 11,720. Current employment levels through April 2012 are similar to those in the first four months of 2011 and 2010. Even though total non-farm employment is down from 2010 to 2011, total private employment shows a slight boost. Government employment declined as a result of fiscal tightening. The goods-producing sector remained steady across natural resources, mining, construction and the manufacturing sector edged up slightly. The service-providing sector contracted because of the small losses in retail trade, which continued to decline in 2012. Government also suffered losses. Industry employment by age and gender The largest job holder group in 2010 was those age 55 and older with 24.8 percent of the work force. This group was followed closely by the 45-54 age group, with 23.1 percent of the work force. In 2010, males held 48.7 percent and women held 51.3 percent of jobs in Okanogan County. There were substantial differences in gender dominance in employment groups: In 2010, females held 56.8 percent and men held 43.2 percent of the jobs. There were substantial differences in

County profiles, history Overall, employment levels are not making strong gains. Educational attainment Over the period 2006 to 2010, 83.8 percent of individuals age 25 and older were high school graduates. This figure is somewhat lower than that of Washington state (89.6 percent) and the nation (85 percent). Over the same period, far fewer of Okanogan County residents 25 and older have attained higher education as can be noted in the low levels of residents with a bachelor’s degree or higher (17.7 percent). This figure does not compare favorably with the state (31 percent) or nation (27.9 percent). —Employment Security Department, The Local Employment Dynamics, U.S. Census Bureau

gender dominance by industry. Male-dominated industries included construction (86.1 percent), mining (86 percent), utilities (72.6 percent) and manufacturing (70.9 percent). Female-dominated industries included health care and social assistance (79.1 percent), finance and insurance (75.9 percent), educational services (68.4 percent), and professional, scientific and technical services (67 percent). Personal income Per capita personal income was $34,016 in 2010. This figure is considerably below the state’s figure of $42,589 and the nation’s figure of $39,937. The median household income was $38,551, which is significantly below the state’s at $57,244 over the period 2006 to 2010. In the period 2006 to 2010, 19.5 percent of the county’s population was living below poverty level, which is much higher than 12.1 percent for Washington state and 13.8 percent for the nation. Okanogan County’s population in 2010 was 41,120. The growth rate from 2000 to 2010 was 3.9 percent for Okanogan County, much lower than that of the state at 14.1 percent.

History Ferry County Ferry County is rich in a history inextricably connected to its present. Highlights of the journey include: 1807: First trading post is established on the Columbia River. 1811: David Thompson, a fur trader, explorer and surveyor, writes about the area now included in Ferry County during his trip down the Columbia River to the sea. 1840s: Canada and the United States establish the international boundary at its present location. The Army establishes a military post at Pinkney City, which became the county seat of Stevens County and included present-day Stevens, Ferry and Spokane counties. 1853: President Millard Filmore signs a bill creating the Washington Territory, which includes today’s State of Washington, northern Idaho and western Montana. 1857: A large tract of land, mostly

Less than a month later, another executive order reduces the size of the reservation and moves it to the west side of the Columbia River. 1883: Gen. William T. Sherman makes an inspection tour - probably over Deer Creek Boulder Pass instead of Sherman Pass, which is named for him. 1885: Chief Joseph and his people are moved to the Colville Indian Reservation. 1890s: The gold rush brings many prospectors and settlers into the area. 1892: North half of the Colville Indian Reservation is purchased by the United States for $1.5 million. 1893-94: First government surveyors establish range and township boundaries. 1894: Ranald MacDonald, the first man to teach English language in Japan, dies and is buried in northern Ferry County. 1896: The north half of the Colville Indian Reservation opens for mining claims.

P. Ferry, Washington’s first governor. Later that year half the Eureka’s businesses are destroyed by fire. 1900: The Gold Rush peaks and Eureka changes its name to Republic for of one of its largest mines. The North Half of the Colville Indian Reservation, now Ferry County, is opened to homesteaders by presidential proclamation. Restrictions on logging are lifted and many small sawmills appear. Two rival railroad companies construct lines in a race to reach the Republic’s gold fields. The local line was known as the “Hot Air Line” because of its shaky financing and premature, exaggerated publicity. 1903: The Ansorge Hotel is built next to the Great Northern Railway in Curlew. 1904: Chief Joseph dies in Nespelem, Okanogan County. 1907: Colville National Forest is established by President Theodore Roosevelt. 1908: The Curlew bridge, built by William Oliver, opens. Two prior bridges were destroyed by floods. 1919: The “Hot Air Line” railroad goes bankrupt and closes. Small towns along the route sink into obscurity. 1933: Construction of Grand Coulee Dam begins. While constructing the dam and filling Lake Roosevelt reservoir provides jobs, electricity and irrigation projects, it also floods hundreds of archaeological sites and forces Keller and Inchelium to move to higher ground. 1964: Curlew Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is built on the site of an old Air Force radar base. 1997: Colville Confederated Tribes celebrate the 125th anniversary of the reservation’s creation. 1998: Flood waters wash out state and county roads in late May. Later that year Knob Hill Mine at the head of Eureka Gulch closes after operating continuously since 1902.

Gold is to be milled in Ferry County. 2007: The Kettle Falls International Railroad removes train tracks between Torboy and Danville ending rail service in the county. Okanogan County Okanogan County’s natives were called the Okanogans, Methows, Nespelems and San Poils. They have since been joined on the Colville Indian Reservation by bands of Nez Perce, Wenatchee, Lakes, Colville, Palouse, Moses and Entiat Indians. Early non-Indians came to the county seeking furs and, eventually gold and silver. Some highlights: July 3, 1811: David Thompson and other fur traders from British-owned Northwest Company drift into the area. They are said to be the first white men to arrive in the Okanogan.

Some of his apple and pear trees still bear fruit. 1860: The fur trade dwindles; Fort Okanogan is abandoned. 1860s: Ben Snipes and others push great herds of cattle nearly 800 miles from the Yakima country to Cariboo mining camps. Some prospectors dip gold pans in the Similkameen River. 1863: Okanogan County area becomes part of Stevens County. April 2, 1872: Presidential executive order creates Colville Indian Reservation.

Like the wagon wheel of old, Omak is the hub of activity in Okanogan County. Centrally located and with the bulk of amenities within her borders, we are certain to have what you need and desire while visiting our area. This year our signature event, The Omak Stampede will celebrate 80 years! Also, and always an enhancement to the event, the Suicide Race will again conquer the hill! If you plan your trip here during Stampede, opportunity abounds for you to take in the Native American dancing, vendors and stick games; all part of the community celebration always the 2nd weekend in August. It’s a fun, friendly and safe family adventure! Our downtown district is a delight for visitors or you can get the essentials at one of our big box stores at any time of the year. Come to enjoy the arts. Take in live theatre at the Omak Performing Arts Center or at our local winery. See the newest movie release at the tri-plex or our stand-alone vintage theatre or perhaps take in a sporting event at our high school. If dining excites you, you’re in for a treat at any one of our bistros or restaurants. Local entrepreneurs value your patronage and are a bevy of information on local activities. For your lodging needs there are several beautiful hotels in our community as well as a City operated RV park to make your rest with us what you want it to be! The surrounding area provides us a wide array of sporting opportunities for the recreational enthusiast. Every one of the four seasons is seen and felt here so do come prepared for the experience regardless of the time of year you’re here! The amenities are ample to deal with any situation. Whether you’re here for a short visit or perhaps you’re considering relocating. We have state of the art medical and long-term care facilities. Our educational system includes all levels of education for youth as well as Wenatchee Valley College at Omak. We are a progressive, culturally diverse community with homespun values that endure throughout time and we would love to have you as our guest. Please consider this your cordial invitation!
