The Pasco City Council is comprised of 7 elected officials. The City of Pasco operates under the "Council-Manager" plan of government, per the Revised Code of Washington Chapter 35.18. Under the Council-Manager plan of city government, the Councilmembers are the elected officials of the City, who then in turn appoint and oversee the City Manager. The Council also elects fellow Councilmembers to serve as Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem.
The process for elections for Councilmembers changed in 2017 to a more district-based system; read more here.
