Water and sewer seeks commissioner applicants
January 19, 2009
The Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District is seeking applications to fill Steve Stevlingson’s position as a commissioner.
Stevlingson, a member since 1999 who was current board president, left for medical reasons.
“He’s been a good commissioner and you hate to see people get sick,” said Ron Little, the district’s general manager.
The deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. Feb. 4.
To qualify for the position, applicants must be a United States citizen, 18 or older, a registered voter and reside within the district’s boundaries.
The board has five commissioner positions, set for staggered six-year terms.
The commission makes policy decisions on water, sewer and streetlights for the district, an area that includes most of the plateau — aside from its northwest corner — and a portion of Union Hill, east of 244th Avenue Northeast. It also includes portions of Issaquah and unincorporated King County.
It meets the first three Mondays of each month at 3 p.m. at the district’s office.
All candidates should submit a statement of interest, a résumé listing relevant experience and a completed application form to Robert Brady, secretary, Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District, 1510 228th Avenue Southeast.
