City of Camas Officials


Glen Morgan


On October 7, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that the City of Camas officials may have violated RCW 42.17A.555 by using the City of Camas facilities to support a Bond Ballot Proposition for a proposed City Community Aquatics Center. 

PDC staff reviewed the allegation, including the applicable statutes, rules and reporting requirement and found that City of Camas officials did not violate the law when they retained a consultant, WSP USA Inc., to assist the City of Camas by soliciting public input concerning the Plan, and informing the public about the ballot proposition that would finance the Plan. 

Based on this finding, staff determined that the City of Camas officials did not violate the law by retaining a private consultant to assist in soliciting public input concerning the Plan for the Community Aquatics Center. 

Based on this information, staff dismissed this matter in accordance RCW 42.17A.755(1).
