Renton looking for candidates for Human Services Advisory Committee

The City of Renton is seeking candidates for two positions on the Human Services Advisory Committee.

One position is for a two-year term and the other position is for a youth member, who must be less than 21 years of age.  Each member will be appointed by the mayor.  Members serve without compensation, must reside inside the city limits of Renton and must be able to attend meetings the third Tuesday of each month from 3 to 5 p.m.  Residents who represent the diverse nature of the city, including ethnicity, geography, gender and age are encouraged to apply.

The Human Services Advisory Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the city in the disposition of human services and allocation of funds to specific programs and projects, and assists in developing policies related to human services affecting Renton residents.  Members strive to understand the human service needs of Renton residents and to keep current on community-wide actions that may affect the availability and quality of human services provisions in Renton.
