Everett Police Looking For Audi A3 That Destroyed Everett Sign

welcome to Everett

This is apparently the rear bumper of an Audi A3.

welcome sign

This is a hit and run with a damage estimate of $20k

Earlier this week we told you that the Everett sign on north Broadway just south of the Snohomish River was destroyed by a car and the bumper left at the scene.

Everett Police tell based on the bumper and pieces left behind, the vehicle is a silver 2005-2007 Audi A3.

We first reported it was a front bumper but we were wrong. It was the rear bumper and because of that there was no license plate attached as it is mounted on the lift gate on this model. Everett Police think someone may has seen this car over the last couple of days.

While the rear bumper was ripped off and left at the scene, the front of the vehicle may be damaged as well. Anyone with information about this vehicle is asked to submit an online tip on the Everett Police website or call the tip line at 425-257-8450.

The City of Everett says the damage to the sign is around $20,000.00 so they’d really like to find the responsible party.

Cooley Named As New Director Of Everett Library


Cooley is coming all the way from Baltimore to take the position in Everett.

After interviewing four candidates the Everett Public Library has named Abigail Cooley as new director. Here’s a bit more information…

The Everett Public Library Board of Trustees has selected Abigail (Abby) Cooley as the next director of the Everett Public Library. Cooley will start Nov. 1, 2017, taking over the leadership role from Eileen Simmons, who is retiring after nearly 20 years with the library system.

The City and Board of Trustees conducted a national search for Simmons’ replacement, culminating in a public meet-and-greet with the four finalists last week. After conducting candidate interviews and reviewing feedback from staff, the library leadership team, City Council, and the community, the board deliberated and ultimately selected Cooley.

Board President Rich White thanked the community and library staff for participating in the search process. “We look forward to the continued growth of library services under Abby’s leadership in the months and years ahead,” he said.

Cooley is currently the library manager at Baltimore County Public Library’s (BCPL) Reisterstown and Hereford branches; the BCPL system serves more than 800,000 residents. She began her public library career at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, Md., as assistant manager of the Sights and Sounds Department, and later served as manager of the periodicals department.

“I’m excited to begin working with the Everett Public Library Board, staff, and community partners and explore new and emerging library needs and find innovative solutions that keep our libraries relevant and effective to the Everett community,” said Cooley. “It’s clear that the library and community are both strong and I look forward to becoming a part of them. I can’t wait to experience all that Everett has to offer.”

The library director manages the day-to-day operations of the library, develops the strategic plan, cultivates supplemental funding sources and interacts with a diverse community of patrons, educators, authors and community service organizations.

The library director reports to the Library Board of Trustees, which is empowered to select, evaluate and remove the director. More information about the position is available on the City’s website:
