A City Council Committee of the Whole workshop is usually held before the regular Council meeting and starts at 5:30 PM. All public members are welcome to attend the Workshops and the City Council meetings. In addition, there is an opportunity at the beginning of each City Council meeting for members of the public to address the City Council on any matters of interest or concern.

PLEASE NOTE: During the designated public commentary period within City Council meetings, individuals are allotted a three-minute speaking duration, while representatives of organizations may address for up to five minutes. Before presenting, kindly disclose your full name and residential affiliation with the City.

It is strongly advised by the City to submit verbal comments in written form to expedite subsequent correspondence. Comments must be received by the City Clerk's office no later than noon on the meeting day, addressed to PO Box 1300, Duvall, WA 98019, or deposited at the City Hall drop box located at 15535 Main St. NE, City, or sent by e-mail. Please be aware that the City Council, its Boards, and Commissions solely entertain public comments from attendees present at the meeting in person.

The Council does not accept handouts or printed material during public commentary sessions. Information intended for the Mayor or the City Council should be directed to the City Clerk, who will disseminate it following the submitter's instructions.

Additionally, the City Clerk will receive written public comments and subsequently furnish them to the City Council or the relevant Board or Commission upon receipt. It’s important to note, however, that written comments will not be orally presented during the Council or applicable Board or Commission meetings; instead, they will be integrated into the meeting's minutes.

City Council Responsibilities

Holding an elected office requires a solid commitment to the community. City and state codes legally define a council member's role. This outline is meant to be a description of what a council member's role is in Duvall. 

The Duvall City Council is an elected body of 7 members. The Council's primary responsibility is to set policies for the City. The City Council also has a vital role in the budget process. The mayor is responsible for ensuring that policies set by the Council are carried out. Each Council member oversees policy issues in some aspect of city government. In addition to keeping current on local policy issues, Council members must stay informed on state and county-level issues that could affect the City.
