2024 Comprehensive Plan Update
The City of Brier is updating its Comprehensive Plan for the next 20-year period, 2024-2044. The state Growth Management Act (GMA) requires cities to review and update their Comprehensive Plans every 10 years - and Brier's deadline for this period is December 31, 2024. In addition to these updates, the city will be adopting new zoning regulations in response to state legislative mandates to expand housing options: adding Accessory Dwelling Units and 'Missing Middle Housing' in Brier. For more information you may email the city planner using the link below or visit the Comprehensive Plan Update page.

2024 Comprehsenive Plan Update
I'd like to thank the voters for approving the annexation into the local regional fire authority. We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with South County Fire for two decades and we will continue that relationship under a new model that will give the taxpayers the ability run or vote for board positions and have a say in the future cost model. SCF has provided excellent fire and EMS services and we are grateful that this award-winning department is in our City.
Annexation into the RFA is the most cost-effective way to provide emergency services to our community and it also keeps the fastest response times. This approval also allows the City to remain financially solvent and help us to continue to maintain needed city services.
Police Department staff changes
$10,000 Hiring Bonus
I'd like to express my gratitude to the city staff and the first responders whose hard work and dedication make Brier such a great place to live.
The Brier Police Department has a change in leadership and some staff changes. First, I'd like to announce the promotion of Alex Hawley to Interim Chief. In addition to serving 12 years in the United States Marine Corps, he has ten years of experience serving in positions of increasing experience and leadership with the King County Sheriff's Office and here at Brier. I have a great deal of respect and confidence in Interim Chief Hawley and thank him for agreeing to step up and lead the Brier Police Department during this time of transition.
We welcome a new employee, Officer Jacquelyn Reimer, who has 2 years of experience and comes to Brier from the City of Bothell.
There are two departures to observe: departing are Lieutenant Ridout and former Chief Almquist. Staffing continues to be a challenge in Police Departments in Washington state, and the City of Brier is no exception. BPD continues to recruit new officers, offering a competitive wage and $10,000 signing bonus. We are grateful for the continued partnership and support of the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department, who provide additional coverage as needed.
