Please join the King County Council for a special Town Hall Meeting:
Wednesday, Sept. 30
6:00 p.m. – Public Reception
6:30 p.m. – Program
Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club
4520 MLK Jr. Way. S., Seattle
The Town Hall will feature briefings and discussion on light rail, recent changes to Metro bus service, and the current Metro budget gap.
We’ve already seen big changes in our public transit system in recent months, including the launch of Link Light Rail and a restructuring of Metro bus routes around this new service.
Now, Metro is facing a $213 million budget gap over the next two years. In the coming months, the Council must find a way to balance Metro’s budget while maintaining the best transit system possible.
We have been working on this problem and through a major performance audit we have identified millions of dollars in potential savings. However, more efficient systems alone will not close the budget gap.
We need your input on whether bus fares should be raised, service hours cut, routes eliminated, or what other creative solutions can be found.
You will have a chance to ask questions, share your ideas, and provide testimony on public transit or any other issue.
Town Hall Meetings are an opportunity for the Council to hear directly from you in your community. We hope to see you there!
