Everett to vote on jets at Paine Field

The Everett City Council is scheduled to take action on a resolution supporting commercial passenger jet service at Paine Field.

The vote is scheduled at 8:30 a.m. today during the council’s regular meeting at 3002 Wetmore Ave. Council members are expected to vote in support of the measure.

A cost-benefit study conducted for the city concludes that Paine Field passenger service could attract and retain high-tech businesses and that noise problems from expanding service could be remedied.

Opponents of scheduled passenger service at Paine Field include the city of Mukilteo and a majority of Snoho­mish County Council members.
