King County, Washington
This website provides a variety of county services important to rural residents and refers to rural towns and cities, community events and other goodies:

Community Service Areas
The Community Services Area program was created to meet the King County Strategic Plan goal of promoting public engagement that informs, involves, and empowers people and communities in King County and implements the public engagement framework ordinance passed by King County in 2011. The County will produce a community work plan of ongoing services and projects in each of the seven community service areas, and provide residents the opportunity to meet with elected officials and key County leadership to learn about and offer insights on services that are under way or planned in their community. For more information, contact CSA Program Manager Alan Painter, at 206-477-4521.
