- A panel advocating for veterans of the (first) Persian Gulf War will hold public hearings at the VA medical center on Beacon Hill this month. The Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans will be here Jan. 14 and 15. The committee is holding a series of public meetings to receive feedback before recommending programs to help Gulf War vets. — Now Hear This (P-I blog)
- The city’s blocked off part of bicycle/pedestrian sidewalk on the Jose Rizal Bridge to fix an erosion problem. No estimate for completion given, though. — Getting There
- With this Sunday night snow, so far Seattle schools are still opening on-time and Metro advises checking for service revisions before you head out tomorrow. SDOT has 16+ trucks out sanding and plowing. Drive carefully if it doesn’t all melt off overnight!
One thought on “Beacon Bits: Veterans, bridges, and Metro, schools, and snow”

This Committee is allowing Vets to speak before them, during Public Coment Sessions.
