Comment on Metro budget gap

Metro's board of directors still has to decide how to close a budget gap projected at $189 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Metro held six public hearings recently to get public feedback on the many options that range from service cuts to fare increases and just about everything in between. Today is the last day to submit written comments to Metro about closing the deficit.

Written comments may be e-mailed to public-hearing-testimony@wmata.com. Comments are due by 5.p.m. April.6.

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.

Today, at the Stadium Armory stop, I saw a Metro manager, a metro police officer, and two other employees watch as one contract employee swept the platform. And people wonder why there is a budget deficit.

We might as well support the service cuts. We are getting them anyhow.

The survey link isn't working.

Sorry, FHMetro. It looks like the survey is no longer active.
