The Mountlake Terrace City Council filled two vacancies on city boards Monday night with the appointments of Arthur Robertson to the Planning Commission and Robert Newell to the Community Policing Advisory Board. Both appointments are to fill terms that expire on June 30, 2014.
The city’s Planning Commission is charged with making recommendations to the City Council regarding land use issues, changes to the city’s Comprehensive Plan and proposed development code updates. The Community Policing Advisory Board hears reports from the city’s police department; promotes police services, crime and safety programs; and assists with the city’s National Night Out event each August.
The City of Mountlake Terrace operates five citizen boards and commissions that advise the City Council and promote various issues concerning land use, police and safety, recreation and parks, the arts and the Mountlake Terrace Library. Due to the staggered terms on the boards, and the occasionally resignation of a serving board member, the City accepts applications from residents interested in serving on these boards and commissions at anytime. There is currently a vacancy on the Library Board that City officials would like to fill soon.
