King County Council

Got an email from Claudia Balducci bragging that they’d passed a supplemental budget.  Hidden in her bulleted list was this item:

 

  • $100,000 to design a commemoration of Japanese American Farmers as part of the Eastrail (formerly the Eastside Rail Corridor) crossing at NE 8th Avenue in Bellevue;

 

At least Eastrail is better than any of the options they put up for a vote – and it’s good to know that they are spending money on what will be a big-deal crossing at NE 8th.
