here lies your problem, because agency_selected is a string, not a list.
If your string contains comma separated values, try:
"agency_name in agency_selected.split(',')"
everything else seems fine, except you could optimize the use of <option>
by only doing <option value=".." <dtml-if "..">selected</dtml-if> >
