The work of the volunteer commissions is temporarily suspended (except for the Planning Commission and Civil Service Commission, both mandated by state statute) while the City Council moves along in its strategic plan development far enough to identify key City priorities and determines the role of Commissions in "working" those priorities. For more information: Ordinance NO. 1118.
Volunteering for Commissions or Committees
The Commissioner's Manual
describes the roles and responsibilities of Commission and Committee
members. If you would like to serve on a Commission or Committee,
contact the Mayor at City Hall: 206-368-5440 and fill out a Commissioner Application Form.
