Snohomish County to Fill Civil Service Commission Opening

Applications to fill this vacant position on the Civil Service Commission will be accepted through February 20, 2022

EVERETT, Wash., January 18, 2022  – Snohomish County seeks to fill a recently-vacated Commissioner position for the Civil Service Commission.  The deadline to return applications is February 20, 2022. 

The Civil Service Commission was created by the state legislature to establish a merit system of employment for Snohomish County deputy sheriffs and other employees of the Sheriff’s Office, thereby raising the standards and efficiency of law enforcement.

Under state law, anyone appointed to the Civil Service Commission must be a United States citizen, must have been a resident of Snohomish County for at least two years immediately preceding the appointment, and must be a registered Snohomish County voter.

No member after appointment can hold any salaried public office or engage in county employment, other than their commission duties.  Members of the commission serve without compensation.

The appointment will be four years to fill an unexpired term ending December 31, 2026.  Full term appointments are for six years. Three members serve on the commission at a time.  Members can serve a total of three terms.

The Civil Service Commission meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:15 a.m.  The Commission would normally meet at the County Administration West Building, 3000 Rockefeller Avenue, Everett. However during the COVID pandemic, the commission has been meeting remotely.

To apply, go to, or for more information, contact Yvonne Chan at 425-388-3600 or
