There are seven positions on the Spokane Valley City Council. Council elections are held every two years and Councilmembers are elected to serve four-year terms. For continuity, Council position terms are staggered by two years so that all positions are not open for election at the same time. All Council positions are at-large positions.
* Bi-annually at the first meeting of the year, Councilmembers select the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to serve two-year terms.
** These positions are completing vacated positions and will actually serve two terms: One is a short term from the date the 2017 election was certified, which was Nov 28, 2017, through the end of the year 2017. The second term begins January 1, 2018, and for positions 5 and 7, they will begin their own full-year term from 2018 through 2021; and Position #2 will complete the remainder of the vacated position, which is through December 31, 2019.
