Snohomish City Council vacancy open for applications

SNOHOMISH — Applications are being taken for the City Council seat throughout this month, with the council scheduled to decide who to appoint onto council next month.
Any qualified resident living within the city limits of Snohomish may apply online at, or contact City Clerk Brandi Whitson at 360-282-3181 to request an application.
Applications must be received by the City Clerk no later than Friday, Oct. 2 at 5 p.m.  Any applications received after that time will not be considered.   
Councilman Jason Sanders stepped down Aug. 31 as he and his family moved to Eastern Washington.
The position will be included in the regular 2021 general election as a special election for a two-year term to fill the rest of what would have been Sanders’ term. He was re-elected in 2019.
Sanders himself was appointed to council in 2017 against a field of seven candidates; he was on the Economic Development Committee before getting the appointment.
The City Council is tentatively scheduled to meet on Oct. 6 to conduct an initial review of the applications, and depending on how many are received, it may narrow the number to be interviewed to about six finalists.  The Finalists will be invited to participate in a public meeting tentatively scheduled for Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. to interview with City Councilmembers.  Following the interviews, it is expected that a selection will be made.  The selected candidate will be sworn in at the regularly scheduled council meeting on approximately Tuesday, Nov. 3.
