Whether you are moving to our city, or just visiting and want information, we want you to feel welcome.

Established in the late 1880s and officially incorporated in 1905, our community has a rich and colorful heritage. Logging, mining and agriculture provided the economic and cultural foundation in those early years. Today, Sultan is a quiet but growing community with a population fast approaching 5,000.

Our city is on the brink of a great transformation. Already several hundred new residential homes, commercial and retail projects currently are in the development process. We recognize that growth is inevitable, and we are actively taking the steps necessary to protect the wonderful way of life that our residents have treasured for over one hundred years.


We are working to enhance our website!

Please check in frequently to enjoy the latest news from city hall, plus a rundown of upcoming city and community events. While you’re browsing the site, be sure to peruse our monthly business and volunteer spotlights, which serve to highlight both community members and local businesses. Another area of our website slated for improvement is our “City Council” section, which will be updated to feature information about your elected officials.

Effective June 1, 2016, Snohomish County is providing non-emergency numbers for the public use. After years of promoting 9-1-1 as the number for non-emergencies, YOU ARE NOW ASKED TO CALL 9-1-1 ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES.

Calls for police with no immediate danger to life or property, found property, or firework complaints should be referred to the non-emergency numbers.

The new numbers are: 425.407.3999 (SNOPAC) and 425.775.3000 (SNOCOM). SNOPAC is the call center for Everett and for East and North Snohomish County. SNOCOM is the call center for South Snohomish County. When in doubt, refer to the SNOPAC number.

Snohomish County has developed a web page with information for the public about calling 911 which lists the new phone numbers, links to other resources (filing a noise complaint, the online crime report etc.) and what constitutes an “emergency”.

For more information, please contact your local police department or call City Hall at 360.793.2231.
