Hello and welcome to the Office of the City Administrator and the City of Cosmopolis. We are located along the Chehalis River and US 101. Cosmopolis is the southern gateway into Grays Harbor County and has the honor of being the oldest city in our county.

As City Administrator I have the honor of working with an outstanding team of employees. I’m responsible for supervising, administering and coordinating the activities and functions of the various city officers, all departments, commissions and boards via the departments in accordance with city ordinances, state and federal laws, good government, and the policies created by the Mayor and City Council, and to assure the effective and efficient utilization of city employees, city funds, materials, facilities and time.

I also serve as the Public Works & Community Development Director for our city.
