Those with an interest in local history or geneaology are invited to apply for two positions now open on the Edmonds Cemetery Board.
In addition to helping set policy and develop goals, board members assist in planning and participating in the annual Memorial Day Program, “Walk Back in Time” Cemetery Tour in July and the “Walk About” Veteran’s site tour in November.
The Cemetery Board meets the third Thursday of each month at 4 p.m., except in December. City residency is not required, nor is one required to own a site or have a family member buried in the cemetery. The Cemetery Board manages the operation of the city’s cemetery, including the sale and location of burial lots; maintenance of the grounds, monuments, and markers; and capital improvements. The board also manages monetary gifts and donations on behalf of the cemetery.
Board members are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council. Terms are for four years with no term limits. Applications must be submitted by 4:30 pm on Friday, March 30, 2018.
