THE CITY OF TOLEDO WELCOMES NEW CITY MANAGER

MR. JAY BAUGHMAN


The Toledo, Oregon City Council has selected Mr. Jay Baughman as the new City Manager for the City of Toledo. Baughman, a Pacific Northwest native, has spent the past 2 years as Assistant City Manager in the city of Surprise, AZ before joining the City of Toledo. Mr. Baughman was selected from one of four applicants for the position.

Mr. Baughman said, “I am humbled and honored to have been chosen to serve the citizens of Toledo as their city manager. I see a city with a wonderful past and measureless potential. Working together with both Council and City Staff, I look forward to helping Toledo make great steps toward the bright future that awaits it.”

City Manager Baughman replaces former Toledo City Manager Michelle Amberg, who resigned in January 2014. Mr. Baughman began at the City of Toledo on September 8, 2014 and has been diligently working to familiarize himself with the town and its citizens. Make sure to say hello if you see City Manager Baughman around Toledo, he is eager to meet you.

The Mission of the Toledo City Government is to provide efficient and necessary public services that protect and enhance the quality of life in Toledo, now and in the future, as determined by our citizens, the law and available economic resources.

Toledo has a population of approximately 3,400. Toledo City Hall is approximately 58 feet above sea level. Toledo, situated on a bend of the Yaquina River and surrounded by wooded hills, is just seven miles inland from the Central Oregon Coast and the only inland coastal community with a deep water channel. The historic town cascades over the hillsides to the river.

Toledo is one of the few cities in Oregon which has a downtown on a city street, not on a throughway or highway. Toledo's Main Street retains its historical flavor, the waterfront and moored fishing vessels visible at the end of Main Street.

When the winds start to blow on the beach, Toledo is often warm and sunny with a small town atmosphere and beautiful river, estuary, and rural vistas. Antique shops, art galleries, gift shops selling the work of local crafters, quilters, History Center, Rail Road Museum and restaurants make Toledo an interesting place to visit.
