Langley mayor’s position, salary up for grabs

Being the mayor of Langley is now up for application.

Applicants need to have lived within city limits for at least one year and be a registered voter. The term is until the general election in November, unless there are enough would-be mayors to warrant a primary election in August. The mayor’s salary is $53,000, paid in monthly installments of $4,416.67 plus medical and dental insurance.

Langley’s top administrative position became vacant after Larry Kwarsick resigned earlier this month. His resignation came on the heels of a plea agreement with Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks for falsifying city documents while in public office.

To apply, submit a letter of interest and resume to Debbie Mahler, finance director/city clerk, City of Langley, P.O. Box 366, Langley, WA 98260 or email clerk@langleywa.org by 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7.

Interviews are scheduled to begin before the city council meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, at which time the city council may appoint the new mayor.
