King County Community Service Center by Matt Schroeder
There is good news for anyone who's been through the hassle of driving to the King County Courthouse in Seattle, only to roam the halls endlessly in search of a dog license.
   Last week, the King County Community Service Center officially opened for business. The center will act as a substation for the County Courthouse, providing marriage licenses, building permits, pet licenses, voter registration, and even zoning information.
   Located near the corner of Juanita-Woodinville Way and NE 145th Street, the center will serve Bothell, Kirkland, Juanita, Redmond, and Woodinville.
   The official opening July 3 was attended by King County Executive Gary Locke, Councilmembers Louise Miller and Maggi Fimia, and various community leaders.
   Bothell City Councimember Jeanne Edwards was on hand, enthusiastically supporting the new center. She said she hoped the facility would help Bothell fulfill its promise to give residents better community service.
   "I appreciate that we brought all of the players together to plan the center," said Fimia. She believes participation from local communities played a large role in the community service project.
   The center will operate Mondays and Tuesdays from 12-8 p.m. and Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, call 296-9840.
