The City of Mountlake Terrace is seeking applicants for an interim appointment to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission.
Commissioner Gary Hale resigned recently after moving outside city limits.
The seven-member Commission serves to promote and embrace diversity through action, education and guidance. As a group, they seek to foster an understanding that includes, accepts, respects and appreciates every person in our community.
The Commission meets at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. The meetings are currently being conducted via Zoom, with the option to participate by telephone. At some point, the meetings will take place in person at City Hall.
The City Council established the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission on August 3, 2020. The initial appointments were given staggered terms, and the term for the newly vacant position expires on June 30, 2023. Future appointments will have a term of three years.
Applicants must be residents of Mountlake Terrace. The city strongly encourages people of cultural, racial, religious, sex/gender, sexual orientation, age and disability diversities to apply.
Applications must be received by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. Apply online at www.cityofmlt.com/2084. For paper applications, call 425-776-1161. Paper applications can be returned by mail (City Clerk, City of Mountlake Terrace, 23204 58th Avenue W, Mountlake Terrace, WA, 98043).
