[ARCHIVED] Application Deadline for Salary Commission Extended to July 26, 2019

As a reminder, the deadline for applications for the City Council Salary Commission was extended to Friday, July 26, 2019. The newly established Mountlake Terrace Salary Commission is an independent body of five Commissioners tasked to review and set the salaries of the Mayor and City Council. The City Council’s current salary was last adjusted in 2001.

If the Salary Commission determines that the salary paid to the Mayor and/or City Council should be increased or decreased, the Commission will adopt by a resolution with a written salary schedule and file it with the City Clerk indicating the change in salary within 120 days of its appointment. The time schedule may be extended.

Members of the Salary Commission must be city residents and cannot be an officer, official, or employee or an immediate family member of an officer, official, or employee of the city. Salaries will be reviewed every five years. Appointed members will serve for one salary review term without compensation. Members are limited to two consecutive terms.

Applications are due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, 2019. To apply, please visit or pick up an application at City Hall, 6100 219th Street SW #200 on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The City Council will discuss the appointments at an upcoming work/study session with ratification tentatively scheduled for August 5. The term begins upon City Council ratification and ends when the Commission’s salary schedule is adopted and filed with the City Clerk or until the Commission determines that no salary adjustment is warranted.

All meetings of the Commission will be open to the public and a public hearing will be held prior to a Commission vote to increase or decrease salaries to provide an opportunity for public comment. Any salary change established by the Commission is subject to referendum petition by the people of the city. In the event a valid referendum petition is filed, the salary change shall not go into effect until approved by a vote of the people.

For more information, please contact Assistant City Manager Stephen Clifton at (425) 744-6209.
