Starting June 23 and lasting for about a month, private utility crews will be working on SE Center St between the Brooklyn Yard (east of TriMet's Center St facility) and Milwaukie Ave. Northbound lines 17 and 70 will continue to use Center St. There will be intermittent lane closures. Pedestrian access and access to the parking lot will be maintained. Watch for flaggers.

SUPERVISORY REPORTS


McFührer

On Wednesday, June 13, the TriMet Board adopted our budget for next year – and the vote was unanimous. The Board heard testimony from 52 people, mostly organized by the group OPAL. The Board’s actions balanced the budget – eliminating the projected $12 million/year gap. You all have heard me say – and I repeat here – that another $5 million in possible service reductions or fares will be required if TriMet management loses the ATU 757 arbitration. We’ll face that as necessary after July 31st – when we expect the arbitrator’s decision.

Leverage filming at TriMet

Leverage, a popular cable TV show filmed in Portland, recently filmed scenes for an upcoming episode in the LRV paint room at Ruby Junction and at the Washington Park MAX Station. A lot of TriMet employees were involved in the planning and facilitation of the filming, and Leverage will be reimbursing TriMet for the their time and the use of our facilities.

Get out your VERIFICATION documents-trimet coming at ya

Maybe we will need to prove proof of citizenship too:
TriMet is conducting an audit to ensure that only those that are eligible, are receiving TriMet’s health benefits. The eligibility audit began this spring with an amnesty phase that concluded May 18. All ineligible dependents that were reported during this phase have been removed from our health care plans. The audit period, where you will need to verify the eligibility of all the dependents remaining on your TriMet health care plan is beginning. This means you will have to supply documentation, like tax returns, marriage and/or birth certificates, for each of your eligible dependents by Aug. 3, 2012. On or around June 30, you will receive a list of acceptable documents and step by step procedures in the mail.  Dependent Eligibility Audit
