Around Snohomish County
A salary commission is expected to make a recommendation Wednesday about whether a dozen Snohomish County elected officials deserve a pay cut or boost in 2013 and 2014.
The Snohomish County Citizens Commission on Salaries of Elected Officials has been meeting every other week since March 14. Its final meeting this year is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. on the sixth floor executive conference room at 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
The salaries in question apply to the county executive, sheriff, clerk, auditor, treasurer, assessor, prosecuting attorney and members of the County Council.
Any pay increase will take effect on Jan. 1. Any pay decrease will only take effect after an elected official's current term in office has expired.

Stanwood: Open house Thursday
The Stanwood-Camano YMCA office, the new Stanwood Chamber of Commerce office and Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation office are officially open, and the public is invited to take a look.
An open house is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the offices near Viking Village at 88th Avenue NW and Highway 532.
By working side by side, the three organizations can more easily collaborate on supporting the needs of the community, said Theresa Metzger, chairman of YMCA organizing committee.
The space is donated by Bob Cole, with the support of business owners and people who donated art, material and services for building improvements, including new paint and lighting.
"This office is our first YMCA footprint in our community. We are looking forward to helping everyone understand more about what a YMCA can offer now and in the future," Metzger said.
Food and beverages are to be provided at the open house.
