The City of Redmond is searching for a Human Services commissioner interested in a broad spectrum of human service issues, including basic services, health care, counseling, domestic violence and family support.

The position, according to a press release from the city, is open to anyone who lives or works within the city or lives on a property with a Redmond postal address.

The commission advises the mayor and council on general human services issues and makes funding recommendations during the budget process.

Candidates should have an interest in the issues, a willingness to learn and a passion for working to strengthen the city’s effectiveness, the release said.

People who work work a board of directors for a human service agency that operates in the city are ineligible.

The commission is a seven-member panel and meets the second Monday of each month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the city council conference room at city hall and all members are volunteers.
