About the City Council

The City of Washougal is a full service city operating under a Council/City Manager form of government with the passage of Proposition 8 in November 2018. Upon certification, the elected mayor became the eighth council member and was appointed by the Council on December 3, 2018 to continue to serve as Mayor of Washougal. 

In September 2020, Councilmember Ray Kutch resigned Position 5, and the Council approved a motion to revert council membership to the standard number of 7. At this time, Mayor Coston resigned Position 8 and was appointed to Position 5. Then, Mayor Coston was reaffirmed as mayor for the remainder of the biennial term. Position 5 will be up for election on the November 2021 ballot. Councilmembers are elected for four-year terms.

The City Manager oversees the day to day operations of the city with five department directors.
