County Council votes 3-2 to decline setting drug mandate to enter county hotels for homeless individuals

EVERETT — The County Council voted 3-2 along political party lines to oppose an ordinance that would stipulate that illegal drug users would be required to get treatment as a rule to access housing in county-owned shelters for homeless people.
County Councilman Nate Nehring proposed to add the condition when funding sources for a shelter project do not expressly prohibit it. Councilman Sam Low voted in support.
Council chair Megan Dunn and council members Jared Mead and Strom Peterson voted in opposition.
At a public hearing this morning, a large majority of the public speakers were in favor of passing Nehring's ordinance, saying this would provide accountability.
Housing advocates in opposition said it puts a barrier to being housed versus being on the streets. The city of Everett also wrote a letter in opposition.
Opponents on council said the stipulation could cause federal funding sources to be at risk based on how ADA disability discrimination laws are written. Some illegal drug users are a protected class of disabled people because they have an addiction recognized by a doctor.

In other news, a representative of a community dinner program for homeless individuals claimed the city of Everett is seeking to shut down public dinners for homeless individuals.

Lake Roesiger fee public hearing

LAKE ROESIGER — In 2021, the Lake Roesiger community and Snohomish County developed a plan to prevent and reduce harmful invasive plants at Lake Roesiger, including Eurasian watermilfoil, fragrant waterlily, slender arrowhead, yellow flag iris, purple loosestrife and knotweed.
The county now is asking lakeside residents to approve a Surface Water Service Charge for Invasive Aquatic Plant Management on Lake Roesiger.
The plan was approved by 70% of lake area residents in an online survey. Volunteers from the Lake Roesiger Community and Boat Club developed the proposal to fund the plan which uses the surface water fee to cover the costs of controlling and eradicating the invasive species. Funds would solely be used toward Lake Roesiger.
A public hearing will be Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10:30 a.m. in the Jackson Board Room, Snohomish County Campus or on Zoom. A shortlink for the Zoom meeting is www.tinyurl.com/RoesigerHearing
