2019 Council:
Back row: Councilmembers Smith and Marshall, Deputy Mayor Herbig, Councilmember Curtis

The City of Kenmore operates under a Council-Manager form of government. In this form, the elected seven-member City Council appoints a city manager to provide management direction of all city departments and activities in accordance with council policies and direction. The City Council is responsible for establishing City policies; enacting and amending City laws; adopting the biennial budget and appointing citizen boards and commissions. City Councilmembers serve staggered four-year terms. All Councilmembers are “at-large” meaning that they serve the City as a whole as opposed to a specific district. The Council selects one of its members to serve as mayor and a second as deputy mayor for two-year terms.


City Council agendas are available to the public from the City Clerk’s office the Friday prior to the Monday meeting and are posted on the iCompass File Pro website. Agendas are also posted at Kenmore City Hall, Northshore Fire Department, and Kenmore Library. Copies are available at the Council meeting.


Meetings are open to the public, and public comments are accepted at the beginning of regular, non-study session meetings.


The City now has assisted listening devices available for use during Council meetings.  A necklace-style device is available for those who wear hearing aids.  An earbud (in- ear) style, or an over-the-ear style, are available for those without hearing aids.  Please contact the City Clerk as far in advance of the meeting as possible, preferably no later than the morning of the meeting.
