Yesterday, July 23rd, the Chamber's Public Policy
Council had the pleasure of sitting down with County Commissioner Latvala to
see what she holds as the highest priorities for the next couple of months.
Here is a list of the items we discussed:
Consolidation-The commissioner is passionate about finding sensible ways to combine services or infrastructure to save the county and other municipalities money
- Transportation-Improved Transit is vital for our community to continue growing. Latvala sits on the PSTA board and believes encouraging increased routes in North county will lead to more usage of public transit
- Budget-As with all elected officials this time of year, the budget is at the top of Latvala's mind. She is concerned about funding for several important issues next year and moving forward. Some of the items that will need more support in the future include:
A special thank you to Northside Hospital for hosting our
group and providing everyone a delicious breakfast.
