Just so everyone doesn’t forget today is the first of three public hearing around King County on the proposed Congestion Reduction Charge (CRC). Yesterday Metro released more detailed maps of service cuts, reductions or revisions if the CRC is not passed by the council or approved by the voters. From Sherwin’s post a last week.

If you’re more technologically inclined, you have the option of submitting written comments, but I tend to believe that verbal testimonies have an impact that written words don’t. More of our coverage on the Metro cuts here, here, here, here, and here.
