Berliner Talks Minimum Wage, Bethesda Plans, E-Permit Parking Problems, Marriott, DLC, Metro and More at Weekly Briefing (VIDEO)

Montgomery County Council President Roger Berliner told reporters today that he believes Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett is going to veto the Council’s legislation that would increase the minimum wage to $15 by 2020.

You may remember the Council voted 5-4 last week to pass the legislation. Berliner was one of the four Councilmembers (Nancy Floreen, Sidney Katz and Craig Rice) who voted to oppose the bill.

According to Council staff, Leggett has one more week (Jan. 30) to veto or sign the legislation. If he does nothing, the legislation goes into effect.

At his weekly briefing on Monday morning, Berliner talked about the status of the minimum wage legislation and other issues, including the Bethesda Downtown Sector Plan, electronic permit parking problems in residential neighborhoods, Metro, the Women’s March, the latest on small cell antennas, Marriott and more.
