START-Bus

 

 

Town and County officials on Monday agreed not to expand START bus service hours and routes.

The plan was proposed by councilman Jim Stanford who called the idea to expand the town shuttle route from the fairgrounds to Kmart and extend hours to midnight “low-hanging fruit”.

Commissioner Paul Vogelheim said that the START routes need to be part of the Integrated Transportation plan.  Barbara Allen concurred and the commission voted 3-2 to not approve the plan.

Stanford bristled at the lack of support saying that “the town needs to get its priorities straight” and complained that the council spent 21,000 on tree grates and 25,000 on travel.

Councilman Don Frank said “I would like to spend this 200,000 dollars a year for bus transit, but given the fact that we have some terrifying unfunded liabilities, I really think we need to work on this as part of our budget process.”Vice-Mayor Hailey Morton Levinson agreed.

The council voted 3-1 to push off the idea to a future date.
