Sequim's elected representatives
The City Council is the city's legislative body, and Councilors are the elected representatives of people living in Sequim. Sequim operates with a Council-Manager form of government. The Council's principal job is making policy. Councilors appoint a City Manager who is the chief executive officer and head of the administrative branch implementing policy.
Sequim's voters elect seven, non-partisan Councilors to four-year terms on a citywide basis. Council elections are held in odd-numbered years. For more information on elections or how to register to vote visit Clallam County Elections.

Virtual Public meetings
Councilors primarily accomplish their work during open public meetings held regularly the second and fourth Monday of each month starting at 6 p.m. Councilors often hold work sessions prior to regular meetings at 5 p.m., and infrequently hold other special meetings. Currently the City Council cannot meet in person due to the risks of COVID-19.
Agendas for all Council meetings are posted online no less than 24 hours in advance, and you can sign up to receive notification of agenda posting. Published agendas contain guidance on how to listen to meetings online or by telephone, and how to participate in open public comment and public hearings.
Written public comment can be sent to the City Clerk's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be distributed to the Council prior to the meeting. Visit the latest published agendas to see how to participate in the meetings at the top of the latest published agenda.
