Washougal Mayor Sean Guard was called upon three times to break ties during the City Council meeting last night, and all of his votes were regarding the city’s agreements with the Children’s Home Society of Washington.
Guard voted for the expenditure of $7,500 in a professional service agreement with the CHSW to coordinate the facility and services for children and families in the East County Social Services Center, at 1702 “C” St., across from City Hall, in downtown Washougal.
The scope of services provided by the Children’s Home Society includes providing sufficient staff to coordinate programs at the center, responding to requests from residents for assistance, and soliciting donations and grants to pay for additional programs and activities.
Guard also voted for the renewal of a $1 annual lease agreement with the Children’s Home Society to use the social services center.
The city is responsible for the heating and cooling system, all electrical systems in the building, providing janitorial services, parking lot cleaning and maintenance, landscaping, garbage and recycling collection, elevator maintenance and licensing, and routine maintenance and repairs of the building.
