King County has opened a Rural Services Center on Vashon Island to provide residents with a one-stop shop for King County services.
The Vashon Rural Services Center is home to the King County Sheriff’s Office, King County District Court, the Vashon Community Service Center, and services provided by the Department of Permitting and Environmental Review and the Community Service Area Program. The new center was made possible through a partnership between King County and Vashon Island Fire and Rescue (VIFR).
“King County is the local government for Vashon-Maury Island but they’re separated by a ferry ride to receive any County services,” said King County Councilmember Joe McDermott. “This is actually bringing local government to their doorstep.”
The Vashon Rural Services Center, located at 10011 SW Bank Rd. in downtown Vashon, opened on February 20. Watch a short KCTV video below.
