The first meeting of the new year for the Federal Way City Council saw Jim Ferrell take his seat as Mayor, and saw the council elect longtime Councilmember Jeanne Burbidge to the position of Deputy Mayor in something of a split vote.

Burbidge was nominated by Councilmember Dini Duclos, with a second by Councilmember Bob Celski. Burbidge, Celski, Duclos and new Councilmember Martin Moore all voted to confirm Burbidge to the deputy mayor spot.

On the opposite side were Council members Kelly Maloney and Susan Honda, with Maloney nominating Honda, and Honda seconding the motion.
