Moh news 1000 FM, 97 7 Now that the Seattle City Council has passed the largest tax increase in history was Matt Market reports on whether large businesses are thinking twice about having their headquarters in Seattle. The council's central staff estimates are 733 businesses in Seattle are most likely going to have to pay this. Jump start Seattle tax at the council passed, but that estimate was based on payroll data from 2019. It's all pre Cove it in. Some businesses are having a tough go at it right now, the way the taxes structured. Amazon with its 53,000 Seattle based employees would pay the highest tax rates since it's payrolls over $1 billion that qualifies it for the highest tax rate. But Amazon and many other companies Have been letting their employees work from home. Amazon is not making a statement about the tax at this time, but the repercussions of its employees not showing up to the downtown in South Lake Union office towers. Is having a ripple effect on businesses that support those employees. Now, Merlino food supplies restaurants those employees go to dine and its manager wonders if Amazon and other companies keep people at home outside of Seattle. What incentive do large companies have to keep them based in Seattle, where they'd have to pay the tax? Clearly? Nobody's working downtown or in south like you, and then it looks like it works. Why? Why would you have an office in downtown when you can set your your Letterhead up in Bellevue or somewhere else and have your people still work from home? It makes no sense I honestly I think they just, you know, signed the death warrant for downtown and here's something interesting. We went into Amazons Proxy statement the financials they need to file with the Security Exchange Commission. Four of their five top executives have the annual salary over $150,000 attacks is based on a personal salary, not total compensation. The threshold of pain attacks is $150,000. If people made over 400,000 the tax will be much higher. But CEO Jeff Bezos is annual salary. It's just over $81,000 a year. So Amazon would not have to pay the payroll tax that Seattle just passed on Jeff Bezos. And, yes, Bezos is still the richest man in the world pricing out at $171 billion as bars across the state reopen or prepare to welcome back customers. Many of them are making changes for a safe but very different experience. Almost Brian Calvert has a closer look bars near Vancouver. Washington haven't been open long.

"A listen. She was driving the Audi and a four month old daughter was in the backseat. And the crane came in and just crashed. He said it was it was straightening. So it crushed the passenger side of the car. Fortunately, my son was not in that seat at the time. I just can't even imagine. What would have happened? She's actually quite calm right now. I think she's in shock. Hi, imagine. She would be in shock. So that does explain that doesn't it not necessarily that? The crane went between the seats. But based on what he's telling us a family member. Is that crane came down on the passenger side? And how fortuitous that the father was not with him today and that four month old baby girl who was in the back seat of the vehicle was right behind her mother and non on the passenger side. Certainly I think it's fair to say saved her life. Yeah. And he also spoke about the other folks affected in this tragic collapse. He said that the crane operators. He could see at least one of them who he said was inside the compartment that was just on the side of your screen. You could get a sense. It's it's right on the edge of that section of the crane that fell teaches described to an awful scene there, certainly we saw the crowds gathered, and there you can see the compartment what he was describing where he said he. Could see that crane operator inside. If there we don't know at this point, though, we haven't confirmed that either of the crane operators were inside of there. But again to crane operators killed when that crane collapsed. Two people killed inside their cars they were in separate vehicles. According to the fire department and tonight, we don't want to speculate on why that section of the crane fell, but we have been told the crane was being dismantled from the building on the north side of bursar right there at Fairview that is a Google building under construction, we're told it is owned by Vulcan. And that that crane was being dismantled on top of it. Something went wrong. We've heard descriptions of those gusts of winds, but we can't speculate at this point that it was the weather that caused it. But again, something did go wrong and a section of that crane tumbled from the building. And if we can let's take a listen to what Mike mcquaid told Suzanne phone earlier tonight. Now, he is the transportation chair for the south lake union community council and. He said that he was in the area about an hour and a half prior to the collapse, and he watched as a portion of this crane was being dismantled. So, of course, the big question is, you know, what's the protocol for dismantling crane is that something that you're going to do with traffic below was it in fact being dismantled is this is this gentleman. Correct. All questions at the state will have to ask an answer. Let's take a listen again. Mike mcquaid transportation chair for the south lake union community council. What he told us a short time ago? The crane had been. Was being dismantled by crews throughout the day and a toppled to the south wanted the median and the eastbound lanes of Mercer street. Had this been a work day at the same time. There would have been ten times volume of traffic, and it'd be it'd be could have been catastrophic. And you could hear that description. Yeah. Of course is a traffic area.

"It is a nightmare because there's only two lanes I bad. He's right. We discussed this with Tracy Taylor last week about how one of the key areas of the tunnel to watch is not the tunnel itself. But the Mercer exit the Mercer exit feeds a whole bunch of people. Now, this is a Mercer exit on an average day. Let's talk about the Mercer exit. When they Seattle center is. Happening there or maybe when there is a hockey team. They're going to get interesting. Well, if we could just give everybody a beer Cousy for not blocking the box jump in here. Please for a moment. Because that we're kind of ripping on the whole Mercer thing that I'm gonna I'm gonna say for a minute that the Mercer street exit even off of I five gets jammed up too. So how is the ninety nine tunnel any different than what we see every single day coming off of I five it's not, however. Yeah, it's a smaller space. Yes. You don't have four lanes to get you into south lake union. Like you do coming off of I five a four and a half mile backup. I consider pretty reasonable. Yes. It's frustrating. And I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we still don't have that exit ramp opened up at the south end of the tunnel out near the stadiums. Well, but I would say I mean to provide a counterpoint we've got I five dumping people there. We did not prior have the ninety nine battery tunnel dumping people there. So now, we've got to freeways dumping people there. But I am interested when there other exit is open how much better is going to run. And when people change their traffic patterns in what? Absolutely. There's going to there's going to be an adjustment. And we're still going to see that as for Todd. Your your comments on the smoke and the haze that was exhaust. Yes. They are still working with trying to fix the bugs that you know, let's not be naysayers of this tunnel yet. I'm in love with it. I think this is a fantastic fantastic option for drivers at I if you were to talk to me when this project started, I was all against it. But now that I've drove this times, and I've seen how it's improved some of the traffic. I'm all for it. And I'm going to wave that fly for it. I can't wait until the tolls come about ten bucks to drive two and a half miles and.

"Doom is finally ending. We have Cairo radio's Chris Sullivan traffic correspondent in studio with us. Chris this is it. This is the end, right? Let's hope so, but I'm ready now have always been a little bit more worried about what's going to happen. Once the tunnel opens and more importantly once the tolls. Go on the tunnel in the May, June timeframe, and what that's going to do what who are traffic patterns. But yeah. For the three weeks of the vita closure. We're coming to the end the tunnels going to open on Monday morning. So yeah, we made it through the first three weeks of whatever you wanna call it the Seattle squeeze via doom, whatever. But yeah, we made it through, and let's hope that the next couple of days go, well and everybody has fun about that celebration over the weekend that we can talk about in the tunnel opens Monday. Good a drive a Monday morning. It's gonna be great. Yeah. We're going to be doing a livestream actually on the way through after the. Show's over. But I gotta ask you. There's a lot of our listeners you probably don't understand what's going on in the tunnel. Can you give us the breakdown of how the tunnel is going to work where you come out where you go in the biggest thing that most people need to realize that a lot of people still don't there are no downtown exits in this tunnel zero is none there it is a bypass to downtown a true bypass. So if you got off at westerners, Seneca, using the Alaskan way viaduct that doesn't exist anymore. You get in by the stadiums. And you get out in south lake union. It's it's a two mile stretch. Once you're in your in. And so that's going to be very important the ways that you get in and out they've rebuilt intersections on either side. So the parts of south lake union are going to look a little different like Harrison streets got a signal on it. It goes over the top of what is ninety nine. Now, there's some more access there in the south end. They're building an entire new interchange that.

"The highway ninety nine tunnel is expected to open on Monday. How will it affect the commute? It all depends on where drivers are headed. When the tunnel ends at the south end if you wanna go to west Seattle or to the airport. He would just stay to the right? If you're going to the stadiums trying to take a ferry or getting over to I five or I ninety will then you would take the south Atlantic street exit. And then choose your direction from there leaving the tunnel at the north at near Seattle center. You exit to the right then choose a turn onto Dexter to go downtown a left turn onto Mercer street to go to five or continue straight to south lake union. And for the first time in more than sixty years. The new intersection at Harrison street will let drivers cross Aurora avenue. That's komo's Denise Whitaker. Snohomish county has settled the final legal claim over a deputy speeding crash in two thousand fifteen we get the update live from komo's Carleen Johnson. Brett locie was a passenger in deputy John sedro patrol car when the speeding vehicle ran a stop sign at twenty third street and Rockefeller avenue going almost fifty in the twenty five mile an hour zone. They said that patrol car was broadsided by another vehicle. The impact sent the car spinning into the intersection before it struck another vehicle five people were hospitalized, including daring man, who was walking by at the time Aaron Snell with Everett police, there was a pedestrian that was walking. They were injured as well and sustained significant injuries. And we're taking. Harborview medical center that man lost both of his legs settled for more than fourteen million from the county another driver settled.

"Start searching for those alternate routes jamming other streets. We'll Seattle's traffic lights adjusted accordingly to help with that congestion. Komo's Matt Markovits joins us with some answers. Would you find out Matt? Well, we went to the city's transportation operation center, which is in the forty thirty seventh floor of the mini building. And we asked that question because how many times have you? And I actually asked that question. Why don't they change the traffic lights? Why can't they get it? Right. We did that the whole time during the Mercer mess. Well, we asked that question. So I found out that there are three hundred signals in the city of Seattle. That's a big puzzle. And you move one piece out in effect, the others and those traffic engineers have the authority to move a light work a particular light, maybe two or three seconds. Maybe a little bit longer. If they see a congestion, but then you as you know, it it has a ripple effect. So what they've designed is eighteen hundred different models for these three hundred traffic lights based on. On what happened when the vita closed in two thousand sixteen close toy sixteen for ten days. And they noticed the traffic patterns, then that's the only real historical data recent data that they have to basis model, but then things jammed up on first avenue and unforced avenue. So now are they ready for those drill? Here's what happened during that time. I found it really interesting. Northbound drivers came up divided up into the seats through streets. Soto. And then they made a right turn to I five they all try to get on I five to bypass downtown. Same with southbound coming from the north down ninety nine cut across south lake union through the neighborhood, totally clogged up south the Soto totally clogged up south lake union and caused a gridlock and I five right through downtown because they used as they waited till the last moment oddly enough, the traffic flow patterns through downtown during that period were lighter than they expected. So everyone was going around downtown using I five which. Jammed up and then spilled off into downtown on the exits. So this time what here's here's the game plan. One best tip of I've found out today. Drive on a street that has a bus because buses are going to have the highest priority in traffic flow through downtown. So, that's brilliant. So drive on the street that has a bus that's numeral by far for the DOT number two the exits and onramp onto I five. They're gonna be watching them extra close. So they're going to be trying to move as much cars on and off. I five as possible through the Soto and the south lake union areas as well as downtown and Thirdly north south routes. They're going to prioritize those routes more than east west to get people north flowing north and south, and that's their priorities at that point. Once they and how it's gonna work. Let's say there's a big traffic jam downtown. They may tweak a little light here and there, but all of a sudden what they can do is pull from one of these eighteen hundred plans like run a model prior to. It actually making the signal switch they run the mile. Hey, maybe that worked in the implement this eighteen hundred one of these plans to fix the whole downtown grid. And.

What the Amazon HQ2 Cities Could Learn from Seattle

"Amazon dot com, which has long been based in Seattle will split its second headquarters between Long Island City, New York and crystal city in northern Virginia, Amazon's invasion will likely transform the neighborhoods for the better in quite a few ways. But will also bring new headaches the to new locations could probably take a lesson in this regard from Seattle. That's where we find the Wall Street Journal's Jay green who joins us via Skype j you refer to the Amazon, invasion Beit and Seattle or the two new sites as a prosperity bomb. This has been used to describe what happened to Seattle's downtown. Isn't that? Right. Yeah. In really the whole city. I mean, you know, I I've lived here for twenty years, and you know, it's estan Ishida. See what's happened to housing prices. People of certainly gotten rich selling their homes here after Emma's come in. And, you know, been plenty of new businesses that have opened up to support Amazon and the forty five thousand people in employs in the city. What was the biggest chain? Change that Amazon affected and Seattle was at the skyline or was it something else? Yeah. When there's a bunch boy. But the skyline is is the most noticeable certainly there's a neighborhood they first moved into downtown called south lake union that was cut hardscrabble ramshackle. There wasn't a whole lot there and flash forward ten years, and it's bunch of grieving buildings in nice restaurants young folks walking around, but in another wants to write it. It's an mistake. Well to see how much traffic has gotten congested really because of that influx of people downtown. And that's really a lot of that has to do with Amazon, right? Amazon's presence in Seattle's downtown created a series of headaches traffic jams transit nightmares. And I guess as you said, you know, these rising home prices have put homes or home buying out of the reach for many. Yeah. I mean, listen. Goes both ways. Right when I bought my house here twenty years ago, and I'm doing okay. But you know, I think about my kids is they're moving into adulthood can be really hard for them to buy a home in Seattle at this point unless they land some great job hasn't the downtown really been transformed by I mean, just Amazon workers it's sprung up basically, a whole bunch of new businesses to cater to them restaurants, the obvious one because it's something that nine Zony wind up going into and there'd been a bunch of great restaurants that have shown up downtown a lot of quality kinda lunch spots. But also really nice dinner spots to there's all kinds of service businesses that have emerged new banks downtown, and that sort of thing it's really a whole economy that has catered to this influx of people J with Seattle Amazon really wrote the book on how a company headquartered in the city's downtown lot of corporate headquarters have been located suburbs. Look at Seattle that's often the. As well. You know, when Microsoft moved here forty years ago little bit less than forty years ago, they decided to move to Redmond which is a suburb of Seattle, and they have a big campus there and they've expanded. Actually, they even have some operations in downtown Seattle in the neighboring city Bellevue Boeing when it emerged here. Many decades ago it really build plants in Everett, which is north of the city in Renton, which is south of the city. And so it is it doesn't really have a presence downtown. And that's really been the difference with Amazon, and it was very purposeful. Jeff basis talked about how they wanted the company to be downtown because the executives there thought it would be a lure to talent. And I think that's also one of the reasons why they've chosen the new locations urban places in young people tend to like in places Amazon's pick of Long Island city's generated a lot of controversy in the New York area. One criticism has been that the tax breaks dangled in front of Amazon were way, too generous, and that the money could otherwise have been used. Upgrade the city's infrastructure, especially here the subways was there any comparable sort of controversy in Seattle. Amazon is a big employer, and it sort of been part of the discussion in terms of building infrastructure. I think people have been frustrated over the years with the contributions Amazon has has made or not made Amazon has responded in some regards. There's a streetcar in downtown Seattle and Amazon purchased an extra streetcar to ease.
