For the rest of 2017 Amanda Pleasant-Brown will be the primary point of contact for property manager and owner inquiries and Elliot Swanson will be the primary point of contact for service providers and LLP clients. A permanent operator of LLP will be established in early 2018.

As of July 1st, you can rely on Amanda and Elliot at King County to assist you with the following:
