City Council to host special meeting for vacancy applicants

Each of the 24 applicants will have 5 minutes to share additional information at the 5:30 p.m. virtual meeting Thursday, Sept. 10.

The appointment process for the 24-person pool of Federal Way City Council applicants continues with a special meeting Thursday, Sept. 10.

Twenty-four people have applied for position 5 of the Federal Way City Council. Position 5 was vacated after the July 31 resignation of Council member Mark Koppang.

The City Council is providing an opportunity to hear from each of the 24 applicants, in addition to the written materials submitted and prior to narrowing the applicant pool, on Thursday via a Zoom meeting.

The virtual special meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10. The public meeting is open to all and will also be broadcast on the City’s YouTube channel and on local Channel 21.

Each applicant has 5 minutes to provide additional information they feel the Council should take into consideration.

No action will be taken at this meeting, however formal action to narrow down the pool of applicants will be taken at a subsequent regular meeting.

A list of applicants names and their applicants are available to view in the Mirror’s Aug. 31 story.
