Thurston County Seeks Applicants for Citizen Advisory Boards, Commissions, and Committees

OLYMPIA – The Thurston County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) is encouraging interested members of the public to apply for one of the 25 citizen advisory boards, commissions, and committees.

The BOE impartially adjudicates appeals brought by taxpayers on assess property valuations and other determinations of the Assessor. For more information about the BOE, visit:

The Civil Service Commission makes decisions on proposed revisions to Civil Service rules, classifications, and employment standards, and hears appeals to eligibility list removals.
