Snohomish County Planning and Development Services office closed today

The following is a release from the Snohomish County’s Planning and Development Services department:

Snohomish County’s Planning and Development Services department is closed today, Wednesday, July 30, 2014, following the death of an employee on the main county campus in downtown Everett earlier this morning.

The employee, a 42-year-old man who worked for Snohomish County for three years, collapsed at his desk shortly after arriving at work this morning. Coworkers certified in CPR tried to revive him. Paramedics also performed CPR for an extended period of time, but were unable to save him. The man was pronounced dead at his office.

This is a particularly difficult time for Snohomish County employees, especially Planning and Development Services staff. We expect to open the PDS office and resume online services tomorrow, Thursday, July 31, 2014.
