February 25-March 1, 2019

They are nine people in King County who have answered Dr. King’s question: “What are you doing for others?” by their actions throughout the region. This week’s Council meeting will begin with members recognizing the recipients of 2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Medal of Distinguished Service.

This is also the 4th Council meeting of month, which means we invite the public to provide comment to Councilmembers on issues of County interest.

Councilmembers will consider, and possibly act on, a motion specifying the scope of work for the proposed 2020 amendment to the King County Comprehensive Plan, the blueprint for growth in the County’s unincorporated communities.

The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, February 27.

At the Committee level: 

John Taylor, the Director of King County’s Department of Local Services (DLS), will give two briefings to the Local Services, Regional Roads and Bridges Committee:

• An update of the work done by DLS during the recent snow event,
• An update on DLS, the department created to respond to the needs of unincorporated communities in King County.
