The mayor and city council have the ability to make wide ranging decisions with significant effects on their citizens. The best example I can think of to illustrate these concepts is currently ongoing in Redmond. A politically corrupt effort is being run by the usual leftist cheaters and trying destroy the entire eastside by turning it into another Seattle style cesspool overflowing with homeless camps, fires and endless crimes including burglaries, assaults, rapes, murders etc.

A few months ago Mayor Birney started secretive efforts to repurpose hotels in Redmond as homeless shelters. She developed major code zoning changes and is trying to ram these bills thru the legislative process without any public involvement. Additionally she sold the Silver Cloud Hotel to King County and explicitly concealed these efforts from the public under some totally specious claims of "secrecy".

Well surprise WA state has several laws regarding these kinds of situations:

RCW 9A.80.010 Abuse of Office
RCW 9A.28.040 Criminal Conspiracy
RCW 42.36 Appearance Fairness Doctrine
RCW 42.17A Campaigning & Records
RCW 42.30 Open Meetings Act

Rumors and more are circulating via emails. Look for a file named "request9" it has many interesting details.
