At this hour, City Council members are preparing to hold the first of two hearings scheduled for today on congestion pricing. The morning session, beginning at 10:00, will be open for public viewing but closed to public testimony.
The evening session begins at 6:00. Members of the public who wish to testify may sign up on a first-come first-served basis, beginning at 5:30. Public testimonies are limited to two minutes each.
Needless to say, it is important that the council (and the media) hear from as many pro-pricing citizens as possible. The Campaign for New York’s future suggests bringing signs or wearing pro-pricing t-shirts, whether you are able to testify or not. CFNY would like to hear from those who will be attending, if possible; contact Katie Savin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hearings will take place in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, Second Floor.
