Senior Advisory Board seeks citizens to serve

Mercer Island residents over age 65 who are interested in providing input about the creation of community services and programs that meet the needs of seniors on Mercer Island are encouraged to apply for a position on the Senior Advisory Board.

The board will study, review and evaluate senior services and programs, and make recommendations to the department directors for Parks and Recreation, and Youth and Family Services. Recommendations will be taken under consideration while final programmatic decisions are ultimately made by the respective departments.

All regular meetings of the Senior Advisory Board shall be held at least quarterly at a time and place determined by the board. Time commitment by board members is approximately 1-2 hours a month, with the option of more hours on an ad hoc basis.

Applications are due Nov. 30 by 4:30 p.m. Go to www.mercergov.org/files/SAB%20Application.pdf for a form.

For questions or more information about the board, contact Cindy Goodwin at (206) 275-7749 or cindy.goodwin@mercergov.org, or tami.mcneal@mercergov.org.
