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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
