The city is accepting applications from qualified residents interested in serving up through the deadline of 5pm on Friday, January 12th.

Qualified officeholders must be a registered voter, a resident of the city of Wenatchee for a minimum of one year and reside within the District 2 boundary.  The district lies between Cherry Street, Okanogan Avenue and various streets and roads along Wenatchee's Western Foothills.
