05 Aug Snohomish County community cleans up needles (KING5 – 8/5/2018)
Elected leaders came together Saturday to encourage community involvement in fighting the opioid epidemic. Arlington’s mayor and Snohomish County Council members picked up needles using kits provided by the Snohomish County Health District.
“It’s a sad thing and a sign of the times that this is how you spend a beautiful summer Saturday in Arlington,” Mayor Barb Tolbert said. The group estimates close to 200 needles were collected in just a few hours.
