County Council seeks citizen member for Performance Audit Committee
The Pierce County Council seeks applicants to fill one at-large position on the Performance Audit Committee. The Performance Audit Committee studies county programs to improve economy, efficiency and effectiveness.
At-large members serve the public by reviewing audits that assure efficient and effective government through appropriate evidence and auditor independence. The committee meets eight to 10 times a year to decide what should be audited, plan specific audits, acquire audit contractors through a request-for-proposal process, hear audit reports, and make recommendations for action to the County Council and County Executive.
The Council is the legislative branch of Pierce County government and is the policy-determining body of the County, as provided by the County Charter. The Council has all powers of the County not otherwise reserved to the people, the Executive, or general law.
The seven members are elected from each of seven contiguous and equally populated districts. Each county councilmember represents a district having a population of approximately 115,000 people (as of the 2010 Census) and is elected to a 4 year term.
