Eight Pierce County residents who have applied for four vacant positions on the seven-member Foss Waterway Development Authority Board are scheduled to be interviewed this week at City Hall.
The Foss Waterway Development Authority is responsible for the redevelopment of property within and along Thea Foss Waterway. The volunteer board members are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by Tacoma City Council. Board members are typically civic or business leaders with experience in such fields as finance, real estate development, law or construction management.
On Tuesday morning, Tacoma City Council’s Economic Development Committee is scheduled to interview Victoria Cantore, William Driscoll, David Graybill, Phillip Hill, John “Jay” Jetter, Michael Miller (seeking reappointment), Gary Pedersen (also seeking reappointment), and Stan Sidor. The committee will then make recommendations to the full city council, which is expected to vote on the appointments during its meeting on Tues., Nov. 12.
The candidate interviews will be held on Tues., Oct. 29, at 10 a.m. at the Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St., Conference Room 248, in Tacoma. Copies of the agenda and meeting materials are available online here.
