The dam beside Pepper Branch Park has passed its annual state inspection.“I haven’t seen a report, but I did get a phone call telling me everything is fine,” said McMinnville Public Works director Bill Brock.Brock added a touch of humor when he informed McMinnville officials about the inspection.“For those of you who don’t know, the city owns a dam,” said Brock. “It’s inspected by the state every year.
