About the Commission

The Snohomish County Citizens' Commission on Salaries of Elected Officials is an independent commission that meets every two years to fix the salaries of elected officials in Snohomish County. The commission sets base salaries according to the duties of office and to attract citizens of the highest quality to public service. The offices whose salaries are set by the commission are the county council, executive, assessor, auditor, clerk, prosecuting attorney, sheriff and treasurer.

In 2006, the voters of Snohomish County approved an amendment to the Snohomish County Charter that requires the recommendations of the commission to become law without further action by the county council or executive on January 1 of the following year subject to referendum as provided in SCC 2.105.080 and Charter section 6.120.
