Skagit County Code
14.44 Enforcement - Update on Citizens' Work
After 40 plus hours of
work by a volunteer citizens' group and three meetings
(one lead by Comm. Wesen and one lead by Comm.
Dahlstedt), Ryan Walters, Prosecuting Attorney's Office
staff presented the final draft to the BOCC on September
16, 2014. Friends thanks the many citizens who
wrote comments and scheduled time to attend these
working meetings and the public meetings. This
model of using citizen committee to propose updates to
the Skagit County code has proven to be a good way to
work on the issues. Special thanks to Roger
Mitchell, Randy and Aileen Good, Ed Stauffer, Andrea
Xaver, Ellen Bynum and Paul Taylor for their time and
