In preparation for the Budget Summit at the SRRTTF meeting on 9/27, you all have homework! Please scroll down and review the document titled “Activities for SRRTTF Funding Consideration_prioritized by TTWG.” 
This document shows a consolidated list of PCB monitoring and control action projects (from longer lists compiled of ideas proposed in advance of the September Technical Track Work Group (TTWG) meeting). At that meeting, the TTWG discussed a broad range of options before agreeing to complete an online survey (after the options had been distilled into an actionable list) designed to provide a rough priority ranking. Individuals from 14 participating Task Force entities completed the survey, including nine of 13 SRRTTF voting member entities. The above mentioned document shows those activities, as ranked by the TTWG.
In August, the Task Force had a brief presentation covering some (Ecology-suggested) of the ideas, but the SRRTTF has not discussed the full list. Please take the time to read the document, thinking about best use of limited Task Force funds, and PENCIL in on it a High, Medium, or Low to denote your prioritization of each potential project. Add any discussion notes you’d like to bring up at the SRRTTF meeting on 9/27, where people will have a chance to advocate for or ask questions about these potential activities. It is worth keeping in mind that by the time a contract for the Washington state funding of $310,000 can be put in place, perhaps 18 months can be used for these funds (which must be used before June 30, 2019).
Please come to the 9/27 meeting having spent some time thinking about these ideas, and be ready to listen & discuss the potential activities. After dialogue on the activities at the meeting, the group will conduct a dot exercise to gain a visual representation, then hold discussion with the goal of reaching consensus on a list prioritized by the full Task Force.
Please review all other decision documents prior to the meeting as well.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to prepare, and see you on September 27th!
