MARYSVILLE Mayor Dennis Kendall is seeking citizen nominees to fill a vacancy on the three-member Marysville Civil Service Commission.
The vacancy occurs with the stepping down of Bob Lambert after nearly a decade of dedicated service. The chosen candidates would serve a six-year term starting in March.
The commission presides over a civil service system for police officers to provide for promotion on the basis of merit; to give officers tenure and to investigate whether removals, suspensions, demotions and discharges were made in good faith and for cause. The commission adopts civil service rules and regulations that meet civil service system objectives.
Nominees must be citizens having resided in Marysville for at least three years prior to appointment to the commission.
To apply, individuals must send a brief letter of interest to Assistant Administrative Services Director Tracy Jeffries, Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave., Marysville, WA 98270. The letter should also include the applicants political affiliation; city and state law require that the time of appointment no more than two commissioners shall belong to the same party.
Deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Friday, March 21. For more information call 360-363-8000.
