City of Yelm Seeking to Fill Volunteer Positions

Posted

City of Yelm is looking for volunteers to fill vacancies on various boards and commissions.

The recently created Salary Review Commission has a vacancy after one of the three-member board resigned over the weekend.

Without a complete board, the commission cannot continue meeting, said City Administrator Michael Grayum.

The commission was created to independently review and decide whether or not to adjust the salary package of City of Yelm elected officials. Members of the commission must be residents of the Yelm Urban Growth Area and cannot be a city official, employee/elected official or immediate family member of a city employee/elected official.

The city also has three vacancies on the Tree Advisory Board, which helps develop policies and procedures to enhance and protect the city’s urban forests.



The Yelm Tree Advisory Board meets six times a year (September, November, January, February, March and April), at 4 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the month in the Yelm Public Safety Building at 206 McKenzie Ave SE.  There are exceptions leading up to Arbor Day for meeting dates.

There are also two vacancies on the Historical Preservation Commission, which helps survey local historic properties, review National Register nominations and create public participation opportunities in historic preservation activities.

The eight member Yelm Historic Preservation Commission meets the first Monday of each month, except for July and August, at Yelm City Hall.  

To learn more about these boards and commissions go to www.ci.yelm.wa.us, click on the “City Government” tab and then select “Boards and Commissions.” A digital copy of the boards and commissions application form is available there.
