Mayor – Kathie Wight
Deputy Mayor – Christina Weir
Councillor – Len Kirk
The Municipal Election of 2017 voted in Council to serve for a period of 4 years. Each fall in October there is an Organizational meeting held in, which the term of Mayor and Deputy-Mayor are determined for the next year. Committee appointments are also reviewed and revised at the Organizational Meeting.
Council remuneration is set by policy. The Village of Longview compensates Council members for the number of meetings they attend including mileage if travel is required. This compensation does not generally cover all the time invested in serving the community. Councillors are entitled to this stipend. In the past some Councillors have not claimed all of the meetings attended or travel involved in service of their community and donate this to the benefit of the community.
