City Council Members are elected volunteers. They live within City limits and are your neighbors. They all have full-time jobs and families but they also spend a lot of time on City committees and projects because they love Mosier!
The Mosier City Council usually meets the first and third Wednesday evenings of the month. If you want to receive email notices of the meeting schedules and agendas, just fill out a simple form.
Come join us and help us to represent the needs of all Mosier citizens. Contact City Hall (contact info on this page) about the election cycle. When there are vacancies on Council, you can apply for a nomination to a City Council seat as long as you are a registered voter and have been a resident of Mosier for at least 12 months prior to applying.
