The group will address recent con­cerns regard­ing dis­rup­tions to fer­ry ser­vice and advo­ca­cy efforts.

“This is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to come togeth­er and have an open con­ver­sa­tion about what has been hap­pen­ing for WSF and how we are able to con­tin­ue work­ing with WSF for the best pos­si­ble ser­vice, giv­en sys­tem-wide con­straints,” said Coun­cil Chair Chris­tine Min­ney.
