Virtual Information Sessions on Metro FY22 Budget
Next week, Metro is hosting four Virtual Information Sessions for elected officials, jurisdictional partners and community leaders to discuss the Authority’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget. These information sessions are in addition to the scheduled public hearings. I encourage you to sign up for one of the DC focused sessions. If you have scheduling conflicts please attend one of the other sessions. We hope you can join us.
This year’s budget is unlike any other, due to the effect the Covid-19 pandemic has had on our ridership and revenue. That’s why it’s more important than ever for us to collect extensive feedback, and we’ll be asking for your help to reach communities you serve.
