Islanders interested in serving on the Vashon Ferry Advisory Committee are encouraged to apply by the 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 13, deadline. Two positions are open.

The King County Council appoints members to the committee, which advises and provides information to Washington State Ferries on a range of issues, including ferry schedule development, fare and pricing policy, and terminal vessel passenger area concerns, among others.

State law dictates that three members serve on the committee and that each one live on Vashon, that at least one person be a representative of an established ferry group or frequent user of the ferry system, and that no more than two members be from the same political party.

Currently, Greg Beardsley heads the committee, and Kari Ulatoski, who has been a longtime member with Beardsley, plans to re-apply for the position she has filled. Jan Stephens recently stepped down.

One of the positions will serve a four-year term through June 2022, and the other position will serve out a partial term ending in June 2019. All applicants will be considered for both positions.

Applications are available at kingcounty.gov/council/mcdermott.aspx. ContactMelissa Bailey with McDermott’s office with any questions about the application process at melissa.bailey@kingcounty.gov.
