Fire destroys Bel-Red carport and five cars
A carport fire at a Bel-Red-area apartment complex this morning destroyed a carport and five cars inside it. Fire investigators from the Bellevue fire and police departments were still investigating the cause this afternoon.
At 7:48 a.m., a caller reported that at least one car was on fire at the Woodland & Foothill Commons Apartments, 13700 NE 10th Pl. Within minutes, other callers reported several cars on fire. By the time fire crews arrived at 7:55, the whole carport was in flames.
Open house for major transportation projects
Major transportation improvements are planned for the Wilburton and Bel-Red areas.
Residents will have an opportunity to learn about and offer input on major transportation projects in Bellevue at an open house on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at City Hall.
The Mobility and Infrastructure Initiative Open House, 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the concourse, will cover a dozen of the city's most significant transportation projects and planning efforts. People can learn about the projects and comment on the design work done so far.
Residents invited to offer input on budget
The downtown police substation could be closed due to budget cuts.
The City Council is deliberating on a proposed 2011-2012 operating budget and 2011-2017 Capital Investment Program (CIP) plan, and input from residents is welcome. A public hearing is set for Nov. 15, 8 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall (450 110th Ave. NE).
With the economic downturn taking a major toll on tax revenues, City Manager Steve Sarkozy proposed a budget in September that cuts 85 jobs and reduces spending by $11 million. The council, scheduled to adopt a final budget and CIP plan on Dec. 6, is considering modifications to the proposed budget, with budget discussions dominating council agendas in October and November.

Get ready for tolls on 520 Bridge

Come next spring, the state Department of Transportation will implement all-electronic tolling on the SR 520 Bridge, affecting many Bellevue residents and others who travel to and from the city for work or visits.
The new electronic tolling system, called "Good To Go!," will use technology to keep traffic moving with no toll booths, no stopping, and no slowing down. Tolling revenue will help pay for construction of a new, safer SR 520 Bridge.
Bellevue's government works to ensure Eastside light rail serves the needs of residents and businesses.
