The Council is comprised of seven members, all of whom have an equal vote, with the Mayor chosen every two years from among fellow Councilmembers. As the legislative body, the City Council establishes local laws and policies, and has general oversight and control over the City’s finances, primarily through the budget process. Council meetings are held Tuesdays beginning at 6:00 p.m.. 

            Submittal process:  Applications must be received by the City Clerk no later than 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, 2015.  Late arriving mail will not be accepted.  Applications may be hand-delivered or mailed to: Chris Bainbridge, City Clerk, Spokane Valley City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague Avenue, Suite 106, Spokane Valley, Washington, 99206.  Questions may be directed to Chris Bainbridge, Spokane Valley City Clerk, 509-720-5102, or e-mailed to cbainbridge@spokanevalley.org. E-mailed or faxed applications will not be accepted. Applications can be found on the city’s website at www.spokanevalley.org; or by calling the City Clerk’s office. The formal appointment will likely be scheduled during one of Council's Regular Meetings in June.
