The next Washougal town hall will feature discussions regarding a potential public vote about the city’s form of government.
During the City Council workshop yesterday, Councilwoman Joyce Lindsay requested that the issue of changing from a strong mayor to a council-manager form of government be discussed and potentially placed on the Nov. 5 ballot.
Councilman Paul Greenlee suggested city officials talk to Bill Ganley, who has been involved with council-manager government changes in Battle Ground.
Ganley is currently serving his fifth consecutive term in office as a Battle Ground city councilman. He served as the Battle Ground mayor from 1997 to 2001.
Councilwoman Jennifer McDaniel described the potential change as “an interesting proposition.”
“It has some merits,” she said. “I have heard some interest from the public. The issue comes up about every two years.”
