EVERETT — A resolution supporting the effort to build a monument to the Bill of Rights on the Snohomish County campus passed the County Council 4-0 Wednesday.

The idea for the tribute to the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution comes from MyBillOf Rights.org, a nonprofit that is spearheading efforts to build similar monuments throughout the country. Juggler and comedian Chris Bliss founded the group.

The county would not have to pay to design, build or install the monument, only to provide a space at its administrative campus in downtown Everett.

The Snohomish County Arts Commission would help select the site.
