King County Council Committee special night meeting
After meetings in Downtown Seattle and Bellevue, the Metropolitan King County Council’s Transportation, Economy and Environment (TrEE) Committee will host its final special night meeting to provide the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed legislation implementing the reduction of Metro Transit bus service on May 20:
Tuesday, May 20
Renton Pavilion Event Center
233 Burnett Ave. S., Renton
5:30 p.m. sign in/open house
6:00 p.m. public testimony
The meeting will be an opportunity for the public to learn more about the implementation plan, speak to Metro staff about the proposed cuts and route changes, and discuss the legislation with committee members before the legislation is sent to the County Council for final action in early June.
The County Executive has sent the County Council legislation on how he proposes to phase in reduction of service hours. The Executive’s ordinance proposes service reductions starting in September, with Metro ultimately eliminating 72 bus routes and reducing or revising another 84 routes over four quarters.
Day-after coverage of the night meetings will be available both online and on King County TV, seen on Comcast and Wave Cable Channel 22.
