Washougal City Council Resumes In-Person Meetings

The Washougal City Council will return to in-person meetings on March 14 after nearly two years of virtual sessions, Mayor Rochelle Ramos announced. Masks or proof of vaccination will not be required for entry into Washougal City Hall. 

“I’m anxious to move back to in-person meetings,” Councilmember Molly Coston noted. “I think we’re losing an element of collegiality and conversation that is important.” 

In March 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic, the Council and city staff quickly transitioned to virtual meetings in accordance with state mandates on public meetings to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

One positive takeaway from meetings during the pandemic was the ability for residents to participate without coming to city hall. The City plans to continue this option by implementing a hybrid format via the communications platform Zoom. Existing video equipment has been modified to accommodate the hybrid format. Plans are underway for the installation of an upgraded council chambers audio/video system, but several of its components are backordered because of supply chain issues. 

“I’m looking forward to going back to some bit of normal,” Councilmember Janice Killion stated.

How to participate:

  • In-Person
    Attend in-person at 1701 C Street, Washougal, WA 98671. Proof of vaccination and masks are not required. Council workshop begins at 5pm and the meeting follows at 7pm. 
  • Zoom
    Residents may call in and participate during public comment periods during the workshop and meeting (instructions below). Zoom meeting links are available at https://cityofwashougal.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=393 (URL available Thursday at 8pm). 
  • E-Mail
    You may also send public comments before and during meetings to the City’s public comments email, publiccomments@cityofwashougal.us (limit to 300 words). Your email will be routed to the Council and included in the record.

Additionally, council workshop and meeting footage is posted to cityofwashougal.us shortly after meetings conclude at https://cityofwashougal.us/129/Agendas-Minutes.
