Metro has said it needs to raise fares to help close a budget deficit of $103 million. The question is how much. As staff writer Dana Hedgpeth reported earlier this week the staff has tweaked an earlier proposal, but the fare increases would still affect bus and rail riders and those of us who use Metro’s parking facilities.

Dana will be tweeting live from the meeting. You can follow her tweets below or on Twitter @postmetrogirl.
