Sound Transit Seeks Volunteer for Agency Oversight Panel

The Sound Transit Citizen Oversight Panel (COP) has a current opening for a volunteer from Snohomish County to help the agency succeed in meeting its commitments to the public.  The COP was created in 1997 to act as an independent oversight entity by digging into agency details, asking hard questions, and reporting its findings to the Sound Transit Board of Directors.  Its 15 members represent a variety of interests, professional expertise and experience.  The panel meets twice monthly, during normal business hours.  Application materials are available online. To qualify, applicants must be a registered voter within the Sound Transit District and reside and/or work in Snohomish County, be able to attend meetings twice each month during normal business hours, and have experience in one or more areas related to the panel’s responsibilities: business management, engineering, financial management, public facilities and services, large project construction management, government processes, and public policy development or review.  More information can be found at the Sound Transit website.

County Council Holds Evening Meeting in District 2

On Monday, March 12th, the Snohomish County Council will hold their second evening meeting of 2018. The meeting will be held at 6pm at the Tulalip Tribes Administrative Building, Room 162 (6406 Marine Drive Tulalip, WA 98271), which is located within Snohomish County Council District 2.

In November of 2016, Snohomish County citizens voted to pass Proposition 5, which requires the County Council to hold an evening meeting in each County Council district at least once per calendar year.

Each public meeting includes a public comment period. The Council encourages the public to attend these meetings as they are able, and to come with ideas and suggestions for the Council as they start to plan for the County’s 2019 budget.  Agendas and additional information can be found on the council webpage.

Spring and Summer Farm Camps for Children and Teens

21 Acres Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living has a number of spring and summer camps and programs designed for specific age groups, as well as schools and other small groups. Summer Farm Camps attract a diverse group of young people who come together around growing and preparing good food while having a great time in the process.  Lots of hands-on experiences, special guests, and tours of area farms round out this fun experience about the circle of life and benefits associated with sustainable farming. There are camps designed for teens on down to children as young as 4 years old.   The Spring Break Farmland Exploration Course is a week long course designed for upper level middle schools and high schoolers ages 12-17.  The course introduces a number of STEM topics, allowing students to get a taste of farm management, sustainable farm practices, and research techniques that not only apply to agriculture but can be used in other STEM careers.  Spring programs begin in April.
