The city of Bellevue is seeking residents to write official statements for and against potential ballot measures on fire facilities and transportation neighborhood safety projects.

The City Council is currently considering whether to place up to two measures on the November ballot. A formal decision could come as early as July 25.

As part of the public process, the city is soliciting interest from residents to serve on the committees that will write the statements for and against the two possible ballot measures. The statements will be published in the King County voter’s pamphlet along with the full text of the ballot measures.

Residents interested in participating on the committees to develop statements on either measure are encouraged to submit an application. Residents can also pick up a hard-copy application from the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 450 110th Ave. NE, or call 425-452-6466 to request that an application be mailed or faxed to them.

The council will appoint no more than three persons to each committee. Applicants should be registered voters in Bellevue, and applications must be received by 5 p.m. July 20. More information about the possible measures can be found at www.bellevuewa.gov/neighborhood-safety.htm.
