City seeks volunteers for Citizens Commission on Compensation of Elected Officials
The City of Edmonds is seeking individuals to fill openings on the Citizens Commission on Compensation of Elected Officials. The position is a non-paid, volunteer position. All appointees must be at least 21 years of age, a registered voter, must reside within the City of Edmonds, and must not serve in any official capacity for the City.
This seven-member advisory commission meets every other year on a periodic basis. Board members serve for a four-year term and are eligible for reappointment. The Commission’s duties include reviewing the salaries and benefits of the City’s elected officials and preparing a salary and benefit schedule to be filed with the City Clerk to become effective the following budget year. The commission seeks to establish compensation so that citizens of the highest quality may be attracted to public service.
The commission started work in March 2014 and must file its recommendations for compensation of elected officials with the City Clerk within the time frame required by City Ordinance by mid-September.
Interested residents of the City of Edmonds may pick up an application at the reception desk in the lobby of City Hall located at 121 5th Ave. N., Edmonds, or online at the link below. As there is more than one opening on the Commission, applications will be accepted until the positions are filled, but the City’s goal is to be able to appoint and confirm all commissioners by Aug. 4, 2014.
