The city of Redmond has an opening on the Human Services Commission for anyone who lives or works within Redmond city limits or lives in unincorporated King County on a property with a Redmond postal address.
The city is looking for a candidate interested in a broad spectrum of human service issues including basic services, health care, counseling, domestic violence and family support.
The commission’s role is to advise the mayor and council on general human services issues and to make specific funding recommendations as part of the city’s budget process every two years. Desirable qualities of a commissioner include a strong interest in the issues, a willingness to learn and a passion for working to strengthen the city’s effectiveness in addressing these issues. Please note that individuals who work for or serve on the board of directors of a human service agency delivering services to city residents are not eligible for consideration.
The seven-member commission currently meets the second Monday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Council Conference Room at Redmond City Hall. All commission members are volunteers.
To learn more about the commission or to apply, locals can go to http://www.redmond.gov/Government/BoardsCommissions/, click on “Community Service Application” and submit a completed online application. There is no deadline, but interested citizens are encouraged to apply by June 15.
