Marysville mayor seeks individual to serve on Civil Service Commission

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall is seeking citizen nominees interested in serving on the Civil Service Commission.

The chosen candidate would serve a six-year term starting in April.

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 U.S. citizens, registered voters in Snohomish County and Marysville residents for at least years prior to appointment.

To apply, individuals must send brief letters of interest to Assistant Administrative Services Director Tracy Jeffries at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave., Marysville, WA 98270.

Letters should also include applicants' political affiliations. City and state law require that, at the time of appointment, no more than two commissioners shall belong to the same party.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. March 12. For more information, call 360-363-8000.
