Council meetings represent grassroots politics at its best; citizens are encouraged to appear at meetings and speak to their elected representatives directly about issues of concern to them during the meeting.  Citizens wishing to contact members of the Council outside of the Council meeting may do so by calling the Town Hall at (425) 454-6994 or emailing staff using one of the email links on the Administration page of this website.

The Mayor presides over Council meetings and serves as the Town's Chief Executive Officer. The Mayor has the authority to appoint staff to assist in implementing the executive duties of the Town and to appoint citizens to serve on the other advisory commissions and boards of the Town, with consent of the Council.

The Council is responsible for establishing the policies, direction, and goals of the Town through the passage of ordinances, resolutions, and policy statements.  They also are charged with authorizing the Town's annual operating budget and its monthly expenditures.
