Islanders needed for City Boards and Commissions

Several positions will be open June 1 on city boards and commissions.

Most appointments to boards and commissions are made by the Mayor and affirmed by the City Council. Generally, terms run June 1 through May 31, for a four-year period.

In anticipation of expiring terms, the City conducts an annual recruitment, which begins in March, to fill upcoming open positions. However, applications are accepted year-round as other public involvement opportunities occur, such as the creation of an ad hoc committee or a vacancy on an existing board.

For more information on City Boards and Commissions, and instructions on how to apply, go to the City of Mercer Island website.
