The City of Kirkland is seeking adult volunteer applicants to fill three seats on the Human Services Commission (HSC) with appointments beginning April 1, 2019 and ending March 31, 2023. These positions are currently filled by incumbents who do intend to apply for reappointment. Appointments are made by the City Council. Council may also select an alternate appointee in case any additional vacancies were to occur within the immediate six months following the selection and appointment process. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and reside within the city of Kirkland.
The HSC will regularly meet at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The HSC advises the City Council on matters relating to the City’s efforts to support a socially sustainable community through health and human services and programs; develops recommendations on funding priorities and policies; and reviews requests and provides recommendations for grant funding of human services. The Commission’s work will initially be governed by adopted human services policies and guided by the goals and policies identified in the Human Services Element of Kirkland’s Comprehensive Plan.
