News from the Metro-King County Council

county council by Louise Miller, Woodinville, Vice Chair
The budget work has been very intense and all the committees have made their final reports to the Fiscal Committee.
    Council will probably take final action on the Tuesday or Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
    The major changes from the Executive's version include additional police, a full year of funding for many "safety net" programs for youth and seniors, and reductions in management positions in all departments, with the exception of new line workers, such as jail guards and bus drivers.
    If you need maps or other documents pertaining to Comprehensive Plan changes, do not hesitate to contact my legislative aide, Paula Adams, at 296-0308.
    Information on the budget will be available on the Monday after Thanksgiving.
