An enthusiastic advocate for the arts in Washougal plans to resign from the Washougal City Council in May.

Joyce Lindsay, a six-year member of the council, plans to announce her resignation — effective May 31 — during the Monday, March 12, City Council meeting, at 7 p.m.

She plans to move to Bellingham, near her daughter, Jocelyn Lindsay, and son-in-law, Kurt Gazow.

Joyce Lindsay said she will continue to be involved in the Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance (WACA). She is currently serving as a WACA board member.

Lindsay was first elected to the Washougal City Council in November 2011, and she was re-elected in November 2015. Her current term is scheduled to expire Dec. 31, 2019.

Washougal City Administrator David Scott said a deadline has not been established to receive letters of interest from City Council applicants.

“We have some time and will get things set up in the next month,” Scott said.
