This Thursday June 18, Sound Transit and the City of Tacoma are hosting a public meeting about the future of Tacoma Link. They’ll be talking about plans, funding, and how to move forward with extensions. It’s from 6-7pm Thursday at the Tacoma Municipal Building.
Friday, June 19 is the fifth of ten County unpaid furlough days this year. The buses will still run their normal schedules, but all Metro offices will be closed.
10 furlough days also more or less amounts to the 5% pay cut frequently suggested by armchair budget cutters.
