Sound Transit seeks volunteer for Citizen Oversight Panel
North King County representative opening
Posted Date: 2/14/2013
Sound Transit is seeking a volunteer in North King County to help the agency succeed in meeting its commitments to the public. Sound Transit relies on the oversight and expertise of this dedicated and independent group of volunteers. In April, a vacancy for North King County will open. Applications are being accepted now through March 6.
The COP was created in 1997 to independently monitor Sound Transit and make sure it meets its commitments to build and operate a regional bus, light rail and commuter rail transit system. The 15 COP members represent a variety of interests, professional expertise and experience. The COP meets twice monthly during normal business hours and acts as an independent oversight entity by digging into agency details, asking hard questions and reporting its findings to the Sound Transit Board of Directors.
