As for what they’ll be talking about this month, all Councils (except for South Bay) will hear about the On the Move Riders Club and consider submitting letter to Metro’s CEO and Board in support of AB411 which would allow Councilmembers to participate in meetings virtually. They’ll all hear the usual Regional Performance Report and Updates. The Gateway Cities Service Council will hear an update on the C Line State of Good Repair Capital Project and discuss alternate locations for their meetings. The South Bay Cities Service Council will discuss their participation in the April 25 Budget Briefing and the letter they submitted as part of the public comment on draft environmental document on the C Line Extension to Torrance Project.
