This week the Snohomish County Health District’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to integrate with Snohomish County government. On June 8, the Snohomish County Council will, as a formality, vote to remove themselves from the Health District. The new structure of the Health District becoming a Snohomish County government department is scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2023. The 6-month delay is due to various statutory requirements and many practical transition considerations.
The vote culminates years of discussion on how to improve service to Snohomish County citizens, including permit processes. It’s not too early to start thinking about and suggesting process improvements to bring forward.
