"The City has done good work on behalf of Seattle residents to revise the MOU and ILA that the County Council transmitted to the City in July. I consider many of their changes to be strong improvements.
“The County Council will continue to work collaboratively with representatives from the City and Mr. Hansen to address the regional impacts of the legislation.
