County accepts applications for Metro Transit board
June 19, 2012
Issaquah residents can apply to a King County board to improve transit services.
Officials need a King County Council District 3 representative for the King County Transit Advisory Commission — a panel formed last year to advise King County Metro Transit staffers, the county executive and County Council, local jurisdictions and local transportation boards.
District 3 stretches from Woodinville to Issaquah, and from Lake Sammamish to the Kittitas County line.
Members include residents, entrepreneurs and other people concerned about transit service in the county. Members must live in King County and at least half of the members represent disabled or elderly riders.
The executive appoints members and, after approval by the council, appointees serve two-year terms.
The county accepts ongoing applications for the board. Learn more about the panel, and find application information, at http://metro.kingcounty.gov/have-a-say/be-an-advisor.html.
