Apply to Serve on City Council

City Council Appointment Application


Have you ever wanted to serve on the City Council, but you weren’t sure about campaigning? Keep an eye out for an upcoming opportunity.

With the election of Tom Ellis as Mayor, it created a vacancy for Council Position 4. At the next City Council work session on January 15th, we will be discussing the application and appointment process for selecting a community member to fill the remaining two-years of that term.

This is an exciting time in Happy Valley’s history. We have significant projects and goals to accomplish in the next few years. Everything from establishing a plan and vision for growth in the Pleasant Valley / North Carver area to running our own parks and recreation programs.

The City Council has meetings on the first and third Tuesday of every month starting at 6:00PM. In addition to the regular Council meetings, many of us serve on regional committees and act as liaisons to our local advisory boards.

If you are interested, please keep an eye out for information on the City’s website and Facebook page. All of us are also open to answer questions about the time commitment. If you have specific questions about the application process, please contact Assistant City Manager, Ben Bryant at or 503-783-3840.
