Deadline nears for applications for vacant Sequim City Council seat

SEQUIM — The deadline is approaching for applications for a vacant seat on the Sequim City Council.

Applications for the seat once held by the late John Miller are due to the city clerk no later than 9 a.m. Thursday, said City Clerk Karen Kuznek-Reese.

Applicants will be interviewed by the City Council prior to the regular council meeting Monday, Jan. 8. A new member of the council could possibly be chosen and sworn in that evening.

The council term will expire Dec. 31, 2019. The salary for the position is $250 per month.

Applicants must be registered voters of the city of Sequim, have a one-year continuous period of residence in Sequim, and hold no other public office or employment under the city government.

Miller died of cardiac arrest at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton on Nov. 29. He was 62.

State law requires the council to fill a vacant position within 90 days of the vacancy.

Miller was elected in 2015 to the council Position 7 seat for a four-year term. He took office Jan. 1, 2016, and served on the city’s Finance Committee, the Clallam Transit System board of directors, and the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. He had previously run for City Council in 2011.

For more information or to receive an application, visit the Sequim Civic Center at 152 W. Cedar St., call Kuznek-Reese at 360-681-3428 or visit www.sequim wa.gov.
