The City of Longview is accepting applications through December 13, 2012 for an upcoming vacancy on the Longview City Council.

The term for the unexpired council position will begin on January 1, 2013 and continue through December 31, 2013. If the appointee wishes to continue serving on the council after the term expires, they will need to officially run in the next election.

The qualifications for filling the office of City Council are that the person must be at least 18 years of age and be a registered voter of the city. The applicant must have been a resident of the city for a period of at least one year before his or her appointment or election. Applications that pass certification will be moved on to the interview process.

Applications for the City Council position are available online at www.mylongview.com by clicking on the yellow "Apply for City Council" button. Applications may also be picked up from the City Hall Executive Office at 1525 Broadway, or requested over the phone by calling 442.5004.

Interviews for the position will be conducted at the Council's special meeting on TUESDAY, December 18, 2012 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall. The City Council will appoint the successful candidate following the interview process.

The vacancy is due to the recent election of Dennis Weber to the Cowlitz County Board of Commissioners, effective January 1, 2013.

About Longview City Council
The Longview City Council meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 7 p.m. in the Longview Council Chambers, second floor, 1525 Broadway, Longview. Workshops are usually scheduled on the first and third Thursdays of the month, if there is a need.

Longview is a non-charter code city with a council/manager form of government. This form of government relies on the belief that policy-making and administrative functions should be kept separate. The Council, which determines policy and is politically responsible for its actions, appoints a city manager as the chief administrator. The city manager is responsible for carrying out policies set by the Council, including directing employees and managing City resources to provide City services. Full details of the council/manager form of government can be found in Chapter 35A.13 of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW).
