City extends deadline for Charter Review Committee applications

Everett residents interested in serving on the City’s Charter Review Committee have two more weeks to apply. The City has extended the deadline for applications to Friday, Jan. 15.

The Charter Review Committee is tasked with reviewing the city’s charter every ten years.
