Website Availability
Snohomish County will make reasonable efforts to provide Internet access to its public website and associated web applications during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. through 5 p.m.). The county has made a conscious decision not to expend the dollars required to staff 24 hours, 7 days a week support for Internet applications or access.

Whenever possible, we attempt to provide system availability outside of normal business hours. However, general maintenance of these systems is routinely required. These activities will generally be conducted outside normal business hours. Please note that some services may not be available during these periods.
    

Routine Maintenance Schedule
The Snohomish County routine maintenance schedule for all systems is Wednesday 5:30 p.m. - midnight and Saturday 6 a.m. - noon. Web applications may be unavailable during these periods.
