The construction activity will disrupt the ability of city officials to serve walk-in customers
Washougal City Hall will undergo interior construction work for the City Hall Security Improvements Project. The construction activity will disrupt the ability of city officials to serve walk-in customers, resulting in a temporary full closure of the building to the public.
The construction work is set to begin on Monday (May 15) and is expected to last until Wed., May 31. The closure of City Hall will not impact other city facilities, such as the Permit Center or Police Station. The City Council work session and regular meeting on May 22 will be held in the Council Chambers, as usual.
Although the full closure of City Hall may cause some inconvenience, city officials want to reassure residents and visitors that customer service will continue with minimal interruption. The city has put in place measures to ensure that all necessary services will be available, and staff will be working diligently to ensure that there is no disruption to services.
During the closure, all City Hall services will be available by phone (360) 835-8501, online at https://cityofwashougal.us or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, and staff will be available to assist customers during regular business hours through these channels.

City Hall security improvements project
The front counter area reconstruction will involve the installation of keyless security entry points and a service window to facilitate transactions. Pacific Tech Construction Inc. from Kelso was awarded the bid of $68,633 on Feb. 27, 2023. This project was made possible through the use of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
Washougal city officials appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we work to improve our facilities.
