Formed in 2017, the Veterans Commission is intended to educate the community on veterans' rights and needs, recognize veterans' contributions to the community and stimulate awareness of their potential, review, identify, and expand services available to veterans, and promote collaborations between service providers, employers, and veterans.
The commission is comprised of 11 members, including three Lake Stevens City Council members and eight community members who are residents of Lake Stevens or the Lake Stevens Urban Growth Area. At least two of those eight members should have actively served in the U.S. Military Service.
The Veterans Commission meets on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in a hybrid format. There are two ways to participate, in person at The Mill, Sawyers Room, 1808 Main Street, Lake Stevens or online via Zoom.
