Metro's Policy Advisory Council Updates

Center for Business Advocacy

June 12, 2020

The Chamber participated in Metro's Policy Advisory Council’s (PAC) quarterly meeting on Tuesday where the PAC heard an update from Metro’s internal COVID-19 Recovery Task Force and the 12 recommendations it made to their board. One of the most robustly discussed items by the PAC was the recommendation to prioritize and re-examine major capital projects in a recovery framework. The task force also recommended engaging major employers and other stakeholders to “develop a regional pact to expand telecommuting and staggered work hours.” The PAC was acutely interested in the financial outlook presentation provided by Metro staff, which provided an update on cash flows and the impact of lost sales tax revenue on Metro’s budget. Metro will continue its efforts to pursue another stimulus package from the federal government.
