Meet Your City Councilmembers
As the City's governing body, Shoreline's seven elected part-time City Councilmembers establish City policies and laws, adopt an annual budget, approve appropriations, contract for services and grant franchises. City Councilmembers serve staggered four-year terms; roughly half the Council is up for election every two years. All Councilmembers are "at-large" meaning that they serve the City as a whole as opposed to a specific district.
The City Council chooses a Mayor and Deputy Mayor from among its members at the first meeting of the new year following an election. The Mayor presides at Council meetings and represents the City at ceremonial functions and inter-governmental meetings. The Deputy Mayor presides in the Mayor's absence.
City Council Meetings
City Council Business Meetings are held on Mondays of each week starting at 7:00 p.m. The City Council discusses study items as well as takes formal action at these meetings, such as approving contracts, awarding bids or passing ordinances. The City Council also holds Workshop Dinner Meetings at 5:45 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. These are informal meetings for the purpose of meeting with other governmental agencies or officials.
Council meetings will be held at Shoreline City Hall, Council Meeting Room on the first floor, 17500 Midvale Avenue N. Visit the Live and Video Council Meetings page for meeting agendas and minutes. Call the Agenda Line at (206) 801-2236 for the latest information.
