Preview of March Service Council meetings

Spring is definitely in the air in Southern California, which means it’s budget season at Metro.

All five Metro Service Councils will meet for their regular meetings this month and hear a presentation on FY17 Budget Development from Conan Cheung, Executive Officer, Office of Management and Budget. All Councils will also receive a report on the public hearings they convened last month. Then each Council will vote whether to approve the changes proposed for their region to be implemented in June 2016 or later. We hope you’ll take time to attend the Council meeting in your area and provide feedback on these important issues.
