For immediate release December 04, 2009

Deadline for applying is 5 p.m. Dec. 9.
An Austin City Council Capital Metro Board Nominations Subcommittee comprised of Mayor Lee Leffingwell, Mayor Pro Tem Mike Martinez and Council Member Chris Riley will review the applications, and then make a recommendation to the City Council on an individual to serve as the City of Austin-appointed community representative on the Capital Metro Board.
