Utility Board

The Mercer Island Utility Board was established in 1971 as an advisory board to the City Council on matters regarding all utilities on the Island.

Seven citizens comprise the board which is staffed by the Finance and Public Works Departments. Members are recommended to four-year terms by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, and subject to appointment by the City Council. A City Councilmember serves as liaison to the group.

The Utility Board meets, as needed, on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers.

Utility Board members should have an interest in City-operated utilities as well as private utilities. Some understanding of rate setting, utility infrastructure or administration is desirable.

Questions? Contact Public Works Director Jason Kintner at or 206.275.7802.

Length of Term
2nd Tuesday at 7:00 pm (as needed) in the Council Chambers at City Hall
