Deadline extended to July 3 for Edmonds Salary Commission applicants

The City of Edmonds is seeking individuals to fill openings on the salary commission, a non-paid, volunteer position. All appointees must reside within the City of Edmonds.

The commission works to establish realistic compensation to attract high-quality residents to public service in the City of Edmonds. The commission’s duties include reviewing the salaries and benefits of the city’s elected officials (mayor and council) and preparing a salary schedule for the city attorney’s review prior to being filed with the city clerk’s office

This five-member commission meets every other (odd) year on a periodic basis in the evenings at Edmonds City Hall or other city building locations (such as the police department training room) to review the mayor and council’s compensation.

Commission members will serve for either one-, two- or three-year terms.  The commission is being re-established this year and member term lengths will be staggered (as per the Edmonds City Code). Members are eligible for reappointment.

The commission meets between July 1 and Sept. 30 including holding at least two public hearings. Any increases or decreases to elected official salaries as determined by the commission must be submitted to the city attorney for review and then the commission shall file a written salary schedule with the city clerk indicating the increase or decrease in salary and the effective date.
