Bellevue Blitz Roundup: City Appoints Finance Director; Bellevue Way SE Project Open House; Foul Weather Traffic Updates
City of Bellevue Appoints Finance Director
City Manager Brad Miyake appointed Toni Call as Bellevue Finance Director in December. Ms. Call has been briefing Public Affairs Committee members on the City’s proposed 2017-18 Operating Budget and 2017-23 Capital Budget. She also provided a deep dive into the financial assumptions behind recently adopted ballot measures Bellevue Proposition One and Proposition Two.
After over five and half years with the Bellevue Finance Department, we congratulate Toni Call on her new position. We look forward to more briefings as the City embarks on a 2017-18 mid-biennium review.
Bellevue Way SE Project Open House Scheduled for January 19, 2017
As reported in the last issue of Bellevue Blitz, the City of Bellevue is moving forward with the Bellevue Way SE project and is ready for additional public input.
Here’s what is on the calendar for this month:
- Thursday, January 19, 2017 – Community Open House, 5 – 7 PM, City Hall Concourse
- Tuesday, February 14, 2017 – Briefing before Chamber Transportation Committee (7:30 AM)
Keeping people moving on Bellevue Way SE has long been a top priority of the Bellevue Chamber. We urge all Chamber members to attend the Community Open House. For those unable to attend, please fill out an online survey regarding project alternatives – open January 12 – 31.
