Marysville residents are invited to apply to serve on the city’s Salary Commission. The seven-member commission meets annually to review the salaries paid to elected officials, including the mayor and city council members, and determine appropriate increases or decreases in salary. Members of the commission are appointed by the mayor with the approval of the City Council.

The commission has the duty of meeting annually between July 1 and September 30, to review the salaries paid by the city to each elected official. The commission then files a salary schedule with the city clerk indicating the change. The salary increase or decrease then becomes effective and is incorporated into the city budget without further action.

Anyone is welcome to apply for the position as there are no prerequisites. However, members must live within Marysville city limits. It is also required that a member of the commission cannot be an officer, official, or employee of the city or an immediate family member of an officer, official, or employee of the city. As stated by the Marysville Municipal Code “A member of the commission shall serve for a three-year term without compensation, with no member being allowed to serve more than two terms.”

To apply, submit a letter of interest and resume by Monday, Aug. 22, to Teri Lester, Human Resources Program Manager, 1049 State Ave., Marysville WA 98270, or by email to [email protected].
