The City Council, as the legislative body of the City, establishes local laws and policies, consistent with State law, through the enactment of ordinances and resolutions. All elected officials in Washington are required to submit annual personal financial affairs statements to the Public Disclosure Commission. City Councilmembers serve as liaisons to the City’s numerous Boards and Commissions. These meetings are held at various times throughout the month. Councilmembers also represent the City on various intergovernmental boards and committees that typically meet monthly at various times.
The City Council body consists of seven positions, each having a four-year term. The City Council meets regularly on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a work/study session meeting held the Thursday preceding the Monday meeting. These meetings are evening meetings, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Throughout the year, special meetings or work sessions are called when the need arises. Three consecutive, unexcused absences result in forfeiture of office.
Members of the City Council receive $800 per month as payment for their services and to reimburse out-of-pocket expenses related to regular duties and responsibilities. The Mayor, who is elected from among the City Councilmembers for a two-year term, receives the sum of $1,000 per month. Pay for Councilmembers will be subject to participation in the Cities Municipal Employees’ Benefits Trust for temporary employees, (MEBT-Temporary).
