Around the County
The Everett Public Facilities Board, which oversees Comcast Arena, voted 5-0 Thursday to waive $1,500 in fees charged to the Henry M. Jackson Centennial Committee.
The planning group scheduled a public program at the arena May 31 to honor Jackson on what would have been the late senator's 100th birthday.
The board wanted to waive the fees because the event is an important community activity, said board member Gigi Burke.
