The Pierce County Council sets policy and approves the annual budget for the second-largest county in Washington (population 814,600). The county's Home-Rule Charter, approved by voters in November 1980, separated executive and legislative duties by establishing a County Executive and a seven-member County Council.
The County Council is supported by a staff of clerks, legal and research staff, administrators, and individual assistants assigned to each Councilmember. The Council's Organizational Chart is adopted per Resolution.
