Mark your calendars—King County Local Services will hold virtual town halls in September and October
This year’s unincorporated King County community meetings will take place online via Zoom. Participants will hear from elected and appointed King County leaders, as well as department staffers, about how their local government is delivering services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As with just about everything in 2020, King County Local Services had to think creatively about how to deliver these popular, usually in-person events while COVID-19 limits public gatherings. Last summer, hundreds of residents turned out to hear directly from King County leaders and officials, explore government services, and more at these events in their communities.
Residents said they preferred that Local Services hold the town halls in the fall, so this year’s meetings will take place—online via Zoom—in September and October.
The series will kick off on Tuesday, Sept. 8 with a meeting for unincorporated area residents and businesses in the East Federal Way area. Local Services will hold another event each week, moving through the unincorporated areas until the final event on Oct. 26 for the Snoqualmie Valley/NE King County area. Below is the full schedule:
- Sept. 8: East Federal Way
- Sept. 14: Four Creeks/Tiger Mountain
- Sept. 16: Greater Maple Valley/Cedar River
- Sept. 21: Fairwood
- Sept. 23: SE King County
- Oct. 1: Bear Creek/Sammamish
- Oct. 6: Skyway
- Oct. 15: North Highline (White Center)
- Oct. 22: Vashon-Maury Island
- Oct. 26: Snoqualmie Valley/NE King County
Each event will run from 7 to 9 p.m. Local Services will provide a Zoom link that users can use to join each meeting as it gets closer to the day of the event.
Residents should keep an eye on Local Services’ website and Facebook and Instagram pages, and/or sign up for email and Nextdoor alerts, to get updates about these events.
