The Island County Housing Authority Board has two vacant seats, leaving county commissioners looking to fill the openings.

There are six seats on the board. Most positions are five-0year terms, although one seat has a two-year term.

The housing authority board promotes sufficient affordable housing, economic opportunity and a discrimination-free living environment.

The board works directly with low-income households to “form effective partnerships to maximize social and economic opportunities,” and strives to do so in a fiscally responsible manner.

Board members meet for up to two hours once a month. Meetings are slated from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month, except in December. The meeting in December is 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of the month.

Those who are interested are directed to supply a letter of interest and statement of qualifications by mailing to Island County Board of Commissioners, Attn: Pam Dill: Re: Housing Authority Board of Commissioners Vacancy, PO Box 5000, Coupeville, WA 98239. Applications may also be emailed to pamd@co.island.wa.us or faxed to (360) 679-7381. Application deadline is 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 16, 2018.

Contact (360) 679-7353 or pamd@co.island.wa.us for more information.
