Metropolitan King County Council votes

   Last week, the King County Council voted to place a ballot before voters in September to authorize the issuance of $193 million in bonds for seismic stability and public safety improvements at Harborview Medical Center.

   The Council also voted to put a replacement levy on the September ballot to continue funding for the Automated Fingerprint Identification System; and approved re-investment of interest earnings from the county roads fund back into roads projects rather than the county's general budget fund.
