Bothell annexation on County Council agenda
The Snohomish County Council is scheduled to vote Wednesday on an agreement that would allow Bothell to prepare to annex of 22,000 new people on the city’s northern boundaries.
The council also plans to vote on agreements to keep trash from the newly annexed areas going through Snohomish County waste stations.
The hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on the eighth floor of the county’s Robert J. Drewel building on 3000, Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
Voters ultimately get to decide on the vast majority of the annexation, aside from a 12-acre parcel that’s already mostly surrounded by city limits. The Boundary Review Board must approve of the annexation before it appears on the ballot.
