Marysville citizens can serve as commissioners


Have a voice in city parks policies or salary decisions by applying to serve on either the Marysville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board or Salary Commission.

The Park Board position became open when Keith Armstrong, who served since April 2007, moved outside the area. The Park Board acts in an advisory capacity to the mayor, city council and parks and recreation director. Issues typically include long-range park and facilities planning, capital improvements, and rules and regulations governing parks properties and recreational activities.

The successful nominee for the Salary Commission will succeed Donald Card, who served the limit of two three-year terms. The Salary Commission is an independent seven-member board that conducts annual reviews of compensation for elected officials.

Appointees for both open positions will serve three-year terms. Candidates must be Marysville residents.

The Park Board meets at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of odd-numbered months in Jennings Park Barn, 6915 Armar Road. The Salary Commission meets annually between January and March.

Interested citizens should submit a letter of interest for these vacancies in care of Assistant Administrative Services Director Tracy Jeffries at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave., Marysville, WA 98270. Deadline to submit letters is 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 30.

For more information, contact Marysville City Hall at (360) 363-8075.
