Created in 2007, this commission advises the Mayor and City Council on matters concerning human services planning and funding. The commission plays a vital role in studying emerging issues and concerns in the human services area to ensure that the basic survival needs of Issaquah residents are met and that support systems are in place to help people through economic and personal crisis. Each year, the commission focuses on its workplan.
The Human Services Commission is comprised of seven regular members, with four-year terms; and two alternates, with two-year terms. All members are appointed by the Mayor and subject to confirmation by the City Council. Terms expire April 30 of the year listed. For more information, see IMC 2.52.
