The city of Kirkland has adult and youth vacancies on several of its advisory boards and commissions.
Interested Kirkland residents, or those meeting the eligibility requirements, are invited to apply.
Eligibility requirements differ for each board or commission. Some incumbents on these boards and commissions have served one term, are eligible and intend to apply for reappointment as noted in the descriptions. Completed applications must be received by the city clerk prior to 4 p.m. on Feb. 13.
To learn more about each board and to obtain the community service application, go to the city website, or call the city clerk’s office at 425-587-3190.
“Serving on a board or commission is such a powerful way to become more engaged in our community,” Mayor Penny Sweet said in a press release. “Our boards and commissions fulfill a vital role in our government, advising the city council on topics of major community impact including parks, tourism, transportation, planning and design review. We value this input tremendously and look forward to all that will be accomplished in 2020.”
Interviews will be held the evening of March 19 at Kirkland City Hall.
Adult vacancies are available on the cultural arts commission, design review board, library board, park board, planning commission, salary commission, transportation commission and the tourism development committee. There is a youth vacancy on the transportation commission.
The members of the advisory boards listed above are appointed by the city council. Most boards/commissions hold monthly evening meetings.
