Anchorage: Administrative Hearing Officer – Municipality of Anchorage

The Administrative Hearing Officer (AHO) is a quasi-judicial position empowered under Anchorage Municipal Code Title 14 to conduct evidentiary hearings and issue decisions which affect individuals and businesses. These decisions are subject to appellate review. Although the position exists under the Municipal Attorney’s Office, AHO decisions are made independently from the Municipal Attorney’s Office as the Municipal Attorney’s Office occasionally represents the Municipality before the AHO.

 Salary range is DOE and will depend upon the legal background and experience of the selected candidate.  The position requires 5 years of legal experience, preferably in local government law or administrative hearings. A comprehensive retirement and benefits package is provided.  The Municipality is considering making this position a 4/5 position, meaning the salary would be nominally based on working 4 regular days, instead of 5, subject to approval by the Municipality’s Employee Relations Department.  The approximate start date would be in late June.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  Candidates who are interested in applying can submit a cover letter and a resume that includes a complete history of education and professional work experience.  Candidates must also submit a professional writing sample.  The cover letter, resume and writing sample can be mailed to: Municipal Attorney PO Box 196650 Anchorage, AK 99519 or emailed to municipalattorney@muni.org
