Executive Office expresses appreciation to Council, public

Read the statement released last night from the County Executive’s office concerning the King County Council’s postponement of a decision on the congestion reduction charge until August 15:

The County Council is still working on this issue, and the Executive appreciates the willingness of Councilmembers to take more time to carefully consider the merits.

Clearly the hundreds who turned out to speak with one voice for a rescue of Metro bus service made a difference, and we thank them for their passion and commitment.

The Executive looks forward to working with the Council toward an outcome that preserves transit, keeps people moving and helps get our regional economy back on track.
