Position open on Salary Commission

May 11, 2017

The city of Edmonds is seeking an individual to fill an available position on the Salary Commission. The commission is seeking to establish realistic compensation so that citizens of the highest quality may be attracted to public service.

The position is a non-paid, volunteer position. All appointees must live in city limits.

This five-member Commission meets 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 councilmembers’ compensation.

Board members serve for a three-year term, except that the initial members shall be appointed for staggered terms of one, two or three years, and are eligible for reappointment.

The commission’s duties include reviewing the salaries 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 city clerk’s office.

The commission begins its work in July, and must file its salary schedule with the city clerk no later than Sept. 30.

Interested residents may pick up an application at the reception desk of City Hall, 121 Fifth Ave. N, or online at the city’s Boards/Commissions website.

To receive an application by mail, call 425-771-0258.

Deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 19.
