Final day of Metro hearings

Thursday is the last day of Metro's hearings to get public input into how to close the $189 million budget shortfall for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

The hearings begin at 7.p.m., with a 6:30 p.m. open house.

-- Thursday: All Souls Unitarian Church, Pierce Hall, 1500 Harvard St. NW, Washington.
-- Thursday: Montgomery County Executive Office Building, Cafeteria, 101 Monroe St. (entrance on Jefferson Street), Rockville.

Metro also has a survey to get public feedback about the options at www.wmata.com/survey.cfm. Officials said results of the survey will be included in a report to the board of directors next month.

Written comments may be sent to the Office of the Secretary, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, 600 Fifth St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20001; or e-mailed to public-hearing-testimony@wmata.com.

Comments are due by 5.p.m. April.6.

When I click on the link to take the survey, it takes me to the WMATA page.

I can't blame WMATA too much for this, because I didn't catch it until this week. It would have been nice if these hearings weren't smack in the middle of Passover for the Jewish community, and Holy Week for the Christian one. I'd have gone to tomorrow's hearing, but I have to be in church instead. Maybe this will explain the low-ish turnout? That and that several of the hearings had next to no Metro access...

If the issues are important to you, you'll take the time and find a way to come.
