County Executive Dow Constantine and other leaders head to the Eastside on Monday night to listen to concerns from some rural King County residents.
The public forum includes representatives from the Four Creeks Unincorporated Area Council — a volunteer group set up to foster ties between county leaders and residents in the area surrounded by Issaquah, Maple Valley, Newcastle and Renton.
Join Constantine, Sheriff Sue Rahr and other county department chiefs at Hobart Community Church, 27524 S.E. 200th St., Maple Valley. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. Participants can arrive at 6:30 p.m. to review maps and brochures about county services.
Residents and representatives from the other five unincorporated area councils also plan to attend. Each group will make brief presentations about issues in their communities. A question-and-answer session for audience members will follow the presentation.
Besides the Four Creeks council, the groups include the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council, Upper Bear Creek Community Council, Vashon-Maury Island Community Council, West Hill Community Council and the Greater Maple Valley Area Council.
