Council Vacancy - Volunteer Needed

posted Feb 22, 2017, 3:42 PM by Jill Nielson

Sadly, Council member Ruth Crear resigned her position early in February this year. She serves the community in several capacities and we thank her for all her efforts as a stellar City Councillor. Her resignation leaves Council Position #5 open and in need of filling. The remaining members of Council have 90 days to appoint a resident to fill the open seat. The appointee would fill the position until the results of the November 2017 election is certified. At that point the position will be filled by the winner of the election for the remaining 2 years of the term. 
Any member of the public who is a property owner in the Vader City limits for at least one year, and who is a registered voter is eligible to fill the position. Let a member of the City Council, the Mayor or the City Clerk/Treasurer know if you are interested in filling the position. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn the processes of city government and to give back to your community.
If you have any questions, please call 360-295-3222.

Community Meeting Scheduled - January 19th, 2017

posted Jan 10, 2017, 12:31 PM by Jill Nielson   [ updated Jan 10, 2017, 12:32 PM ]

The City of Vader will be hosting a Public Meeting for all residents of Vader and the surrounding areas regarding vital neighborhood emergency preparedness. Daucie Willson, a local area resident, has prepared a presentation to introduce a program called Map Your Neighborhood, on January 19th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Vader City Hall building.

Map Your Neighborhood is based on the concept that most neighborhoods will be on their own for the first hours following a disaster and maybe for as long as three days or more. This is an attempt to help each neighborhood to gather important information and skills to respond to your own and other's needs during those first critical hours.

Who is the meeting for?

Anyone who has living at or located on their property or a nearby neighbors' property any of the following:

  • Those who are elderly.
  • Those with a disability.
  • Those which might have children who are home alone.
  • Those who have propane or other natural gas tanks and lines. 

Come join us for light refreshments and lots of information about what to do during and how to prepare for a large scale emergency or disaster. Please contact City Hall with any questions, 360-295-3222.
