Tell Snohomish County Council to make animals a priority in 2009/10
Snohomish County is currently undergoing its first 2009/10 biennium
budget process. Because the budget will support funding for the next
two years, it's imperative that you voice your priorities to Snohomish
County leadership today. If you live or work in Snohomish County, councilmembers need to know that funding for animals is a priority to you in this rapidly growing county with an ever increasing need for animal sheltering and animal control services.
Contact Snohomish County Council today and let them know animals need to remain a priority in the 2009/10 budget.
with declining revenues and competing demands, the county has announced
they will need to make cutbacks in the next two years. The executive's
office predicts a $9.3 million budget shortfall, hiring freezes, and a
decrease in tax collections. It's therefore extremely important for you
to voice your priorities, especially if you are a Snohomish County
community member, before leadership begins the budget review process in
November. Don't let animals fall victim to potential budget reductions in 2009/10.
You can also voice your priority for animals in person at the next community forum on Monday, September 15 located at:
Edmonds City Council Chamber
Public Safety Complex
250 5th Avenue North, Edmonds
