About the City Council

The Sammamish City Council is elected at large by the community to represent their interests. The Council selects one of its members to serve as Mayor and another to serve as Deputy Mayor. It also appoints members to Advisory Boards, which advise the council on various matters.

The city council selects the city manager to act as the chief executive officer of the city. The City Council sets policy for the governance of the City and relies on the city manager to implement the Council's established policies and regulations. Regular council meetings are held on the first Tuesday and third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., with a study session on the second Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. A Committee Meeting of the Whole will be held on the third Monday as necessary. If necessary, study sessions or special meetings may be scheduled at 5:30 p.m., before a regular meeting.

Agendas are posted to the City of Sammamish CivicWeb portal the preceding Friday. Each council meeting includes time for public comment (up to three minutes for individuals and five minutes for those representing groups) and speakers, typically the first order of business after convening. Additional public comment may be available for agenda items, individuals and speakers on behalf of groups may address an item at that time.

For issues requiring follow-up action, it is helpful to have your comments submitted in writing either prior to or at the meeting along with information on how to contact you.
