County Council plans final hearing on 2013 county budget

The King County Council will hold the final public hearing Monday on the 2013 King County budget.

The hearing is at 11 a.m. at the council’s chambers, 10th floor, King County Courthouse, 516 Third Ave., Seattle.

More than 130 people testified at three evening hearings on the spending plan.

The Budget Committee’s two panels — General Government and Public Safety and Physical Environment — have completed their review of criminal justice and health and human service agencies along with their assessment of the budgets of all the separately-elected officials and general government operations.

The county’s budget is typically adopted before Thanksgiving.
