The Washougal City Council unanimously appointed Mayor Molly Coston to a two-year term during a meeting Monday.

Coston was elected mayor in November 2017 before voters passed Proposition 8, which changed the city’s government to a council-manager model. The council appointed her in November 2018 to continue as mayor.

Coston said that the council’s goals in the next two years include completing the planned action process for the city’s downtown core, building out phase three for the Schmid ballfields improvements, completing the Columbia River waterfront trail and improving outreach and engagement with residents.

“I’m re-energized and looking forward to the next two years,” Coston wrote in an email.

The city council again selected Councilor Ray Kutch as mayor pro tem, a position typically appointed annually.
