MTA board meeting will start early next Tuesday 

With new funding sources, the specter of declaring a fiscal emergency, and proposals to extend parking meter hours and increase fares annually, the Municipal Transportation Agency’s Board of Directors have plenty on their plate.

As a result of its full agenda, the board is moving its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday to a 9 a.m. time slot, a change that will allow for plenty of discussion on the myriad of issues before the MTA. Board meetings traditionally start at 2 p.m.

The early time on Tuesday could be an omen of things to come. At its April 20 meeting, the MTA’s Board of Directors will vote on a proposal to move the start time of its gatherings to noon. If the agency passes that motion, the changes will take effect in May.

The agency, which is facing a $56.4 million projected shortfall for its upcoming fiscal year, must submit a balanced budget proposal by May 1.
