Budget wrap-up, Seattle Public Schools, and more…
It’s going to be a busy day, but otherwise a quiet week.
Sorry for the late post today… I was sitting in the income tax court hearing this morning. More on that later.
There’s a lot of news to cover this morning…
Yesterday’s Council vote to kill the head tax, and Monday’s vote to tax AirBnB rentals, top the news.
The Council voted on things yesterday, and in particular the new tax on AirBnB rentals drew lots of press coverage.
It’s going to be a busy week, as Mayor-elect Jenny Durkan ramps up her transition team and the Council tries to finish up next year’s budget.
This morning’s big story: yesterday’s release of the final EIS for the proposed city-wide upzone of urban villages.
The local news is still hyper-focused on this week’s election results, but here’s some other things going on that you should know about.
VOTE. Really. Just stop reading this and go do it right now. It’s the single more important thing you’ll do all day.
