Through proactive leadership and governance, the City Council provides high-quality services and facilities to meet the needs of a growing community.
Seven council members, elected at-large, serve staggered four-year terms. The council members, in turn, select a mayor and deputy mayor from among themselves. The council sets the general policies of the city, which are implemented by the city manager and staff. As your representatives, the council members are available by telephone, mail or email.
On Oct. 28, the council issued commendations for the late Tom Foley, who served the state well as a longtime congressman from Spokane, and the late Don James, who coached the University of Washington football team to unparalleled success. Foley commendation || James commendation
