Boards & Commissions

The Mercer Island City Council encourages citizen participation in municipal government and welcomes your interest in serving on a city board or commission.

Most appointments to boards and commissions are made by the Mayor and affirmed by the City Council. Generally, terms run June 1 through May 31, for a four-year period.

In anticipation of expiring terms, the City conducts an annual recruitment, which begins in March, to fill upcoming open positions. However, applications are accepted year-round as other public involvement opportunities occur, such as the creation of an ad hoc committee or a vacancy on an existing board.

Please know that the Mayor and Council give a great deal of thought to the make up of each board and they seek to have a diversified and balanced group. The Mayor works with the Council board liaison to interview and recommend new appointees. Current board members who are interested in seeking reappointment should send a letter of interest or submit an application to the City Clerk's Office. Please know that re-appointments do not automatically occur.
