City of Spokane Valley Councilmembers will elect their 2012-2013 Mayor and Deputy Mayor during the January 10 council meeting.
In Spokane Valley, the mayor and deputy mayor are selected by a majority vote of councilmembers from among their colleagues on the City Council. In addition to serving as the chair of the Council, the mayor retains his/her role as a regular Councilmember, including voting rights. The mayor is also recognized as the head of the city for ceremonial purposes and by the governor for purposes of military law.
