Everett permit, utility counters closed

The public counters for Everett’s permit and utility services are closed until further notice because of public health worries amid spread of the new coronavirus and COVID-19.

The desks closed Friday, but permit services staff still are available by email, phone and postal mail during normal business hours. Inquiries will be addressed in the order they are received.

An online portal also is available at everettwa.gov/169/Permit-Services.

Return those vans

Community Transit wants people who use vanpools but are now working from home to park at a driver’s home, so the vehicles aren’t left unattended and unused.

The vanpool office remains open, but some staff are working from home.

Call the office at 425-438-2926 or email vanpool@commtrans.org. Remember to include the van number with any message.
