January Metro Board Committee Meeting Schedule

For those who may have an interest in attending the various committee meetings of the Metro Board of Directors, the agendas for same were posted today on the Metro website.

For those who don't know how Metro works, many of the informational items (where a staff report is received and filed, but no vote is necessary) are presented at the committee meetings, primarily to save time at the full Board meeting a week later. In fact, much of my column concerns these types of reports. So there are times when you'll find out things at the committee meetings that you wouldn't hear about otherwise.

The committee meetings, like the Board meeting itself, are held in the Board Room at the Metro headquarters building adjacent to Union Station. Several bus lines, as well as the Metro Red/Purple Line subway and Metro Gold Line light rail, serve this location. The Board Room is on the 3rd floor (just go up the escalators from the lobby).
