Hook.250wide.jpg
Welcome to Pateros, I grew up in Pateros and have served as high school coach, fire fighter, EMT, and police officer. I took the oath of office as the 31st Mayor of Pateros in January of 2022. My Father, Tom, was the 21st Mayor of Pateros from 1979 – 1986. 
My fondest memories of growing up in Pateros are the hot summers riding my bike around town with my best friend, playing basketball at the tennis courts, and celebrating Pateros at the Apple Pie Jamboree. In the winter I would skate on the Methow, build snow-forts on the football field, or on the coldest days play board games inside with friends. As a family, my wife Nicole and son Kinden call Pateros home and are adding to these great memories. We want our community and visitors to feel at home and peace in Pateros and create great memories with family and friends. 
 -Mayor, Kelly Hook

SHORELINE MASTER PLAN UPDATE

The City of Pateros is conducting a periodic update of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) as required by state law. The SMP applies to all lakes over 20 acres, and larger streams (over 20 cubic feet per second) as well as associated wetlands and uplands at least 200 feet on a horizontal plane from the Ordinary-High-Water-Mark of the shoreline. The Methow River and Columbia River (Lake Pateros, aka Wells Pool) and any associated wetlands are within the jurisdiction of the SMP. This project will focus on updating policies and regulations to ensure consistency with current state law. Please help guide this project by taking a moment to fill out the SHORELINE MASTER PLAN UPDATE SURVEY
