Continue reading below

The city’s legislative delegation will hold a public meeting at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday to gather input from local residents on proposed cuts to MBTA service in the city. The T is considering a mix of service cuts and fare increases across the region to close a $161 million deficit projected for the new fiscal year that starts July 1. The MBTA has scheduled a regional public hearing for Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. at Malden Government Center to take public comment from people in surrounding communities. No T officials will be present at Wednesday’s meeting in Medford. The meeting has been planned to get public input in advance of a meeting of the state Legislature’s MBTA caucus on Thursday. “We’re attempting to get the input of the ridership, so that we can bring their concerns to T leadership,’’ said state Representative Paul Donato, a Medford Democrat and member of the caucus. “We want the T to know their concerns.’’ - Kathy McCabe
