Service Sector Governance Councils’ Quarterly Meet and Confer

As I noted in my previous commentary "Metro In Transition", while the
Sectors are being disbanded the Governance Councils continue in their
role of providing oversight of Metro bus operations.

In the past the Councils had an annual joint meeting where they had an
opportunity to have a dialogue with agency management. Art Leahy when
attending the 2009 meeting last Oct. for the first time in his role as
Metro CEO announced he would like to hold the meetings
more quarterly to allow more frequent consultation on regional issues
that cross sector boundaries.

On Tuesday Feb. 16th at 3 p.m. the first quarterly Sector Governance
Council Meet and Confer will be held in the Metro Board Room, on the
3rd floor of the headquarters building adjacent to the Gateway Transit
Plaza just east of Union Station.

The meeting will include an opportunity to present public comment. This
is a chance in one setting to address Metro management/operations staff
and Sector Governance Council members regarding any bus service issues
you may feel worthy of airing. I'll be attending and besides making a
few comments will be interested to hear any other public comments and
also what the Governance Council members have to say and what kind of
presentations Metro staff make. Hopefully it will be somewhat
educational.
