    The commissioners meet today to verify the list. My guess is we'll hear by friday. Would be great news to start the weekend!

    Did you hear if they are sending out an email, letter or posting online? This sure has been a wait!

    Compared to plenty of other departments, they moved really quickly. Seattle took *much* longer.

    I don't work for Bothell. I called them yesterday to get an update and she said they are sending letters out (via post office) today.

    Has anyone received a letter yet? If so, does it give you specific rank?

    Just got my letter, ranked #5 out of 35. Says as vacancies occur the chief will take top 3 or 25% for interviews. Pretty happy with my rank. No preference points for me.

    I think they will only do chiefs if they hire. No word on that yet

    If the annexation passes, BFD's Fire Chief has stated on paper that they will commit to hiring displaced workers from Fire Districts 1 and 7, as well as Woodinville Fire and Rescue.

    The annexation will be displacing approximately 30 career positions. BFD only intends to hire 15 at this point. The remaining 15 will likely be placed on a list and hired over entry level candidates, as BFD has indicated plans to build a new station in the coming years.

    Bothell established a list to comply with civil service rules. No idea what their plans are if the annexation fails.

    Just got a email from bothell saying they were updating there list and wanted to see who still could accept a position. Did say I'm bold that they are not currently hiring. The list also expire sept 28, 2013. Took my name off the list so people should be moving up. Best of luck to all.

    Thanks for the feedback KTF. You're with a great department, but you already knew that. Good luck with everything else in your career!!
