ABERDEEN, Wash. – Today begins the last weekend of transit service for Grays Harbor. Despite the need to drum up support for a sales tax increase on the November ballot, after the Labor Day weekend, Grays Harbor Transit will eliminate weekends, holidays, transfers, and the route to Centralia, but keeping the College Sticker Program for students.
The transit will ask the public for a .01% sales tax increase on the November countywide ballot to upright an $800-thousand budget deficit. General Manager Mark Carlin says if the tax passes it will return them to a state-approved budget. He hoped to see a return to weekend service by 2015.
