The City of Snoqualmie is accepting applications from Snoqualmie residents to fill a vacancy on the city council. Position #2 on the seven-member council is open following the resignation of Council Member Jeff MacNichols, who is moving out of Snoqualmie.

The council position term starts once an applicant  is appointed by a city council majority vote – and ends at the end of 2015. If the appointed council member wishes to continue serving beyond 2015, they would be required to run for office in the November 2015 general election.
