About City Council

The City Council is comprised of two members from each of the three wards within the city, and one that represents the city at-large. The Mount Vernon City Council is governed by MVMC Chapter 2.12 "City Council".

Councilmembers meet for regular Council Meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays each month and for Study Sessions on the first and third Wednesdays. Please check the upcoming Council agenda to confirm dates and times.

Hearing assistance equipment is available for use by the hearing impaired at City Council meetings. Please call the ADA Coordinator at (360) 336-6204 or email the ADA Coordinator to arrange for any special accommodations that you require. Click here for additional ADA information.
