Coming Up at County Council: Meeting Highlights
October 23-27, 2017
On the fourth Monday of every month, the County Council invites the public to comment on issues pertaining to King County. At our October 23 Council meeting, you’re welcome to come provide public testimony.
The Council will also celebrate and recognize those attorneys who go out into their communities and volunteer their time and knowledge to aid those in need of legal assistance with a proclamation declaring October 22-28 Pro Bono Week in King County.
A program that has played a role in the creation of living wage and low-income housing units will receive a boost when the Council considers legislation establishing a King County Housing Authority credit enhancement program.
The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m.
At the Committee level:
Reviewing how to better serve the young people inside the county’s criminal justice system will be the focus of two panels in the Law and Justice Committee:
• University of Washington Professor Eric W. Trupin, Ph.D, will brief the committee on the report: “Working to Reduce the Use of Secure Confinement: A Review of King County’s Children and Family Justice Center”
• King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg will part of a panel that will present a report on the progress of a program in the Prosecutor’s Office—the Community Justice Initiatives—in helping young people in King County.
(Tuesday, October 24 at 1:30 p.m.)
