Seeking Volunteers to Serve on a Pro/Con Committee

On June 20th, 2018 the Snohomish County Council passed Ordinance 18-037. This ordinance provides for submission to the qualified voters of the county a proposition authorizing a local sale and use tax of one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) for emergency communication systems and facilities. In this the council also adopted a new chapter to the Snohomish County Code – 4.30 SCC.

Snohomish County has the responsibility of appointing members to a committee that will write a statement for the measure (pro) and a committee that will write a statement against the measure (con). Committees are allowed to have up to three members. Council is seeking people to serve on either a pro or con committee for the ballot measure. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please submit a letter of interest to the Snohomish County Council no later than 5PM on July 16th, 2018.
