County budget hearings
The Snohomish County Council has scheduled two hearings Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to gather input about County Executive Dave Somers’ proposed 2020 budget.
Somers released a plan last month with $268 million in general fund spending. It includes no increase in the general property-tax levy, but does include a 1% increase in the levy for road work paid by property owners in unincorporated areas. Priorities include public safety, affordable housing and improving the environment.
The council could adopt its version of the annual budget as early as Oct. 30.
This week’s hearings are to take place in council chambers, on the eighth floor of the county’s Robert J. Drewel building, 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
