Houghton Community Council Vacancy
The Houghton Community Council consists of seven members elected every four years from the former Town of Houghton, which joined Kirkland in August 1968. This body exercises both advisory and approval authority over most matters related to zoning regulations and land use within the Houghton area. Members must reside within the territorial boundaries of the former Town of Houghton as of the date of its consolidation with the City of Kirkland (August 1968), be a registered voter and are required to file an elected office holders’ annual public disclosure form with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission. Appointments are made by the Houghton Community Council and will expire upon certification of the 2013 General Election.
The Houghton Community Council currently meets the fourth Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Kirkland City Council Chamber.
