ABOUT CITY COUNCIL

The City Council serves as a link between the citizens of Everett and the government. Councilors connect constituents with resources, services, and city departments.

 

The Council in Everett is made up of five at-large councilors that represent the entire city, and six ward councilors that represent specific areas of the city. Each elected councilor from his or her ward helps to ensure that the issues and problems specific to that ward are brought to the attention of the entire council. Both positions are elected by the entire city.

 

Everett City Council meets on the second and fourth Monday of every month at 7:00 pm.
