Public Scoping Meetings on Proposed Cuts to Transit Service
ABERDEEN, Wash. – Two meetings will be hosted at Aberdeen’s city hall later this month as the Grays Harbor Transit Authority seeks public comment on proposals to fill an $800-thousand budget deficit.
On the line are several budget items including weekend bus runs, portions of the 7-day schedule, and funding for the county’s EMS training program. While raising bus fare would not come close to filling the gap, one solution being discussed is a possible sale tax increase to the entire county.
Residents throughout the county, and those affected by changes to the bus routes are encouraged to attend one of two public meetings on the matter, being held at the Aberdeen City Hall, June 20th at 2 PM, and 25th at 6 PM.
