Mayor proposes $30M replacement fund for Seattle transit

SEATTLE (AP) — The mayor of Seattle has proposed creating a fund that would generate up to $30 million each year for city public transit over the next six years. KOMO-TV reported that Mayor Jenny Durkan said Tuesday that the measure would replace a previous one set to expire at the end of this year and would maintain a 0.1% sales tax passed by voters in 2014 and continue to support access to frequent and reliable public transportation. City Council must approve the measure if it is to go before Seattle voters in November.
