About Longview City Council

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).
