Question

How many City Council members are there?  and how do they become City Council members? 

Answer

There are seven (7) City Council members.   They all serve 4 year terms, except for the at-large position that serves only a 2-year term.    City Council Members are elected by city residents.   They must declare their desire to run for office, as determined by the Stevens County Auditors office.   Then they follow strict campaigning rules.   It is a great honor to be a City Council member.   They are responsible for our City and are faced with tough decisions.   If you are interested in running, please contact the Stevens County Auditors Office 509-684-7514 for a packet of information.
