Three Seattle City Councilmembers will hold a town hall from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity United Methodist Church, 6512 23rd Ave. NW, in Ballard.
Councilmembers Mike O’Brien, Teresa Mosqueda and Lorena Gonzalez will discuss and answer questions about a proposed tax on businesses to raise money to combat homelessness.
Following more than four months of deliberation, Council will be introducing legislation and a companion spending plan resolution outlining the details of a progressive tax on business, which would generate additional revenue necessary to further address homelessness and housing affordability in Seattle.
The North Seattle Town Hall will include a presentation on the progressive tax and spending plan proposals as well as an opportunity for community members to provide questions and feedback. For individuals not able to attend the town hall, the event can be viewed on the Seattle Channel the following day.
