The District of Columbia and Metro will host a public forum to receive input from District residents on Metro’s proposed fiscal year 2011 budget. The transit agency is facing a potential $100 million budget shortfall for fiscal year 2011, which begins July 1, 2010.
The forum will be held on Monday, Oct. 19, at the U.S. Naval Memorial – Auditorium, 701 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m., and includes an opportunity for public comment.
Metro Board Chairman Jim Graham, District of Columbia officials, Metro General Manager John Catoe, and other officials will be on hand to discuss Metro’s FY 2011 budget.
The cost of Metrobus, Metrorail and MetroAccess services is funded in part by passenger revenues and, in part, by subsidies provided by the District of Columbia, the State of Maryland and local jurisdictions in Virginia.
