At their last two meetings, the City Council made interim appointments for city boards and commissions. Volunteers who serve on boards/commissions inform and advise the Council and get involved in the community to help organize events like National Night Out, Tour de Terrace, and Arts of the Terrace.
The city has five Boards and Commissions including the Arts Advisory Commission, Community Policing Advisory Board, Library Board, Planning Commission, and Recreation and Parks Commission.
Council appointed Ann Nygaard to fill an opening on the Arts Advisory Commission, Kathy Bigby and Linda Canney to the Library Board, and Roger Bigby to the Recreation and Parks Advisory Commission.
Members find the experience fun and rewarding by meeting other residents with similar interests, learning about the city, and helping shape the future of Mountlake Terrace.
