Appointments to key new panels were recently announced by King County Executive Dow Constantine.

The plan is due to the Council by June 1, 2013.

The second Panel, the Low –Income Fare Options Advisory Committee, was formed as a result of King County Council action, to advise the Council on the feasibility of establishing a bus fare for people with low incomes. The North King County member of the Advisory Committee is Rob Beem, Board Member of the North Urban Human Services Alliance and Community Services Manager for the City of Shoreline. 

The Committee is expected to complete the majority of its work by June 2013.
