Area Leaders Address Workforce Shortage by Creating a Path for Youth to Skilled Trades

The construction industry in Snohomish County is booming and is expected to see the highest growth in the construction industry in the Puget Sound region.  However, industry leaders are emphasizing that there is a shortage of skilled workers.  Local leaders and stakeholders are bringing focus to the need for career and technical education programs.

David Beyer, the president of Everett Community College, Mayor Leonard Kelly of Stanwood and secretary/treasurer of Snohomish County Labor Council, Mayor Jon Nehring of Marysville, Mayor Barb Tolbert of Arlington, and Snohomish County Councilmember Nate Nehring, have joined forces to promote ways to create an easier path for youth to enter skilled trades. Everett Community College  is working with local school districts on a pre-apprenticeship program with specialized educational curriculum and field training based on local labor unions' input. 

Having a skilled workforce benefits the labor industry, local businesses, and residents who will have opportunity for local construction jobs with wages that can support families.

To read the full commentary in the Everett Herald published August 26:
BNSF Railroad Repair at 172nd Street and 204th Street on September 18 & 19

BNSF Railway Company will be making repairs to the pavement at the 172nd Street/67th Avenue crossing on September 18 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.  Advance warning signs and a detour will be in place. 

Crews will also repair the railroad at 204th Street near 67th Avenue on the morning of Sept. 19, however, the road will not be closed and flaggers will be on site to keep traffic flowing.

The goal is to get the work done at both locations before the morning commute.  

Thanks to Our Seasonal Workers
The City of Arlington relies on seasonal workers who supplement our workforce during the busiest time of the year.  Seasonal staff typically focuses on general landscape maintenance, including weeding, mowing, trimming, and clearing brush. They also perform building maintenance, and assist with cemetery burial services.  They play a significant role in ensuring that community events are successful, assisting with setup and cleanup, emptying garbage, placing signs and barricades, cleaning and stocking restrooms, and many other tasks that provide necessary support.
We had an incredibly talented group this year. We are lucky to have them as part of our team!  Several of them have end dates of September 15th. The others are scheduled to work at least through September.  Thank you!
