The appeal of the ballot title for the City’s $930 transportation levy on the Nov. 3 ballot was withdrawn today and a scheduled 10 a.m. hearing on the merits of the appeal was cancelled.

The City Attorney’s Office (CAO) on Wednesday asked King County Superior Court to dismiss the appeal because it was not filed in the time allotted by state law and because CAO’s prepared ballot title meets the requirements of state law.

The levy was proposed by Mayor Ed Murray. In June the Council approved an ordinance placing the measure on the November ballot.
