STA Presentation, by Jill Lamb and Molly Myers
Ms. Lamb and Ms. Myers gave a presentation on the current state of affairs for the STA and some of the problems they are facing. The most serious problem is the budget which was severely affected by the approval of I-695, which caused the STA to lose 40% of their budget. They discussed the various proposals the STA is considering to adjust the budget accordingly, including service cuts.
The latest route cut proposal doesn’t have any bus service in our neighborhood, with the closest bus stop being behind Rosauers at 5-mile. They also discussed other areas that will no longer receive service, which include Medical Lake, Fairchild, and Millwood. The only method the STA can see to prevent these cuts is to pass a sales tax increase.
Ms. Lamb and Ms. Myers than took questions from the audience.
