Everett: Fire district will have opening
Snohomish County Fire District 1 is seeking applicants to fill an upcoming vacancy on the board of commissioners.
Commissioner Millie Judge is leaving at the end of the year, after being elected to the Snohomish County Superior Court bench.
The board will appoint someone to fill Judge's spot until the next commissioners' election in fall 2013. Whoever is appointed could run in that election.
The board sets the fire district's long-term goals, approves budgets and establishes policies. Applicants must live in the district's boundaries in unincorporated areas between Everett and the Snohomish-King county line.
Applications are available at www.firedistrict1.org.
For more information, call 425-551-1200 or email mmoore@firedistrict1.org. The deadline is Jan. 18.

Snohomish: City approves budget
Snohomish has adopted its 2013 budget. The budget calls for hiring one full-time employee to city staff as well as three summer workers, and does not increase property taxes.
Last week, the Snohomish City Council unanimously approved the $33.3 million total city budget that hires one city clerk and the three temporary workers to help maintain parks, streets and buildings. The budget also includes a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment for the 49 city employees.
In a second vote, the council rejected a proposal to increase the property tax by 1 percent, which would have brought $10,600 in additional revenue.
