The governor’s new “reform” plan has at least two possible direct effects on West Seattle: She is proposing expanding hours at select Department of Licensing offices, including the one in West Seattle, which would as a result stay open till 7 pm Tuesdays through Fridays (1 1/2 hours later) and “all day” on Saturdays (currently 9-3). Also, the list of boards/committees/commissions she wants to get rid of includes the Ferry Advisory Committees; that would directly affect West Seattle, where Gary Dawson is the Fauntleroy rep on the FAC for the Washington State Ferries southern routes; that position has enabled him to get early word of major policy proposals such as the Draft Long-Range Plan and its change of direction re: Fauntleroy ferry traffic’s future (first reported here last November). If the Legislature approves elimination of those committees and others, it would take effect June 30th.
