King County Council To Decide On Congestion Reduction Charge Today

Due to weather, public sign up to testify on the proposed Congestion Reduction Charge has been relocated to the 4th Avenue Plaza of the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave.

The Metropolitan King County Council will hold a public hearing today on a proposed ordinance to impose a two-year Congestion Reduction Charge (CRC) of $20 on vehicle registration renewals in King County.

The Congestion Reduction Charge is the second of two ordinances that will go before the Council today, staring at 1:30 p.m. The Council will first hear public testimony on Ordinance 2011-0205, regarding pretrial alternatives. 

Public testimony on Ordinance 2011-0288, the Congestion Reduction Charge, is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. To accommodate the large number of people expected to testify on the proposal, and to reduce crowding in Council Chambers, the public will also be able to sign up to testify for these issues starting at 1 p.m. 

Those testifying on the CRC will receive cards with an assigned number and the approximate time they should be inside Council Chambers to present their remarks.

The Council is expected to discuss and take final action on each of the ordinances after the end of the individual public hearings.
