Washougal City Council Holds Brief Public Meeting, Exits into Executive Session

October 18, 2011

Washougal City Council most likely held the shortest meeting in their history last evening.  The meeting lasted less than ten minutes.

The Agenda included the regular call to order with the Pledge of Allegiance followed by roll call.  All councilors and the Mayor were in attendance.  There was no correspondence, and no one in the audience chose to make a public comment.

The Consent Agenda was passed in its entirety, with the Mayor commenting that in the future, any grammar concerns would happen before meetings.

Again, no members of the public chose to make a comment during the second public comment period.

The Mayor announced that the E-Street project had been completed.

Council person Rod Morris reported that there had already been one minor accident on E-Street; a boy riding a scooter down the middle lane was struck by a car and had a broken leg.  He also reported that he was wearing a pink shirt in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.

Council person Paul Greenlee mentioned the Camas-Washougal Economic Development meeting with Columbia River Economic Development, stating that it went well.

The Mayor announced a twenty minute executive session regarding a potential litigation.  Council person Jon Russell requested that they continue to remain in the council chambers, since several council person’s were “sick”, and he did not want them to sit to close to each other.

With that, the Mayor ended the public meeting, with no action to follow.
