Disability Board

The Disability Board was established in 1972 as an advisory board to the City Council on matters related to law enforcement officers and firefighters covered under the Law Enforcement and Firefighters Retirement System, Plan I (LEOFF I).

Board members include representatives from the police and fire departments and their alternates as well as two City Councilmembers and a citizen representative. The Police Chief, Fire Chief, Police Commanders, Deputy Fire Chief and the Human Resources Director staff the board.

Police and fire representatives are elected from among their union’s membership on February 1; the citizen membership is appointed by the board by April 1; and Council memberships are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council by April 1.
