We had a Q&A with the police. Here are some key points.
Homelessness-COET provides Outreach and tries to link people with services. Police call Streets to pick up garbage. RV's have moved but more problems with tents and groups like under the trestle, Hewitt and Pacific.
Body cameras- all police in uniform have them and must turn them on anytime they have contact with the public.
Reminder to not leave anything in your care.
Port of Everett
Catherine shared a lot of great information on the port of Everett. Here are some highlights.
The apartments that burnt down last year during construction are being built again and should be ready in 2022.
The first building of apartments are being pre-leased now.
The new cranes are now in operation- allowing bigger ships to dock at the Everett Port.
Did you know that the Everett Port is an International Seaport and has the largest Marina on the West coast?
It is also the 3rd largest container port and is responsible for 40,000 jobs.
