The City of Redmond has an opening on the Human Services Commission for anyone who lives or works within Redmond’s city limits. 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.
The seven-member Commission meets the second Monday of each month from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Council Conference Room, Redmond City Hall with additional meetings likely needed during the months when funding allocations are considered. All board and commission members are volunteers.
Applicants must complete a community service application. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday, December 30.
For more information or to request an application, call the Mayor's office at 425-556-2101 or download an application from the City’s website, www.redmond.gov/Government/BoardsCommissions
Mail the completed application to the Office of the Mayor, City of Redmond, PO Box 97010, Redmond, WA 98073-9710 or fax to 425-556-2110.
