Transit staff considers bus GPS system

Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015 — After a special meeting Wednesday, Feb. 18, the Lassen Transit Service Agency approved the Lassen County Transportation Staff to enter into an agreement with Radio Engineering Industries to potentially bring a GPS tracking system to the Lassen Rural Bus fleet.

“I’m convinced we’ve got an opportunity here, but … I want to see how that opportunity is going to translate into meaningful cost savings that will be enjoyed by both vendor and us having the contract … and how its going to reduce the budget in a somewhat meaningful way,” said board member Jim Chapman.

At a Jan. 12 agency meeting, Brian Garrett, from Radio Engineering Industries, presented what the company could offer to the local transit service and the community.

Dahle urges Congress to reauthorize Rural Schools Act

Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015 — Assemblyman Brian Dahle announced recently the introduction of legislation which encouragesCongress to reauthorize the federal Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000. Secure Rural Schools funding mitigates the impact on county governments and schools from the reduction in timber-harvesting production on federal forest lands.California’s rural communities have come to rely on Secure Rural Schools funding — more than $33 million statewide (annually) — to support public schools and critical roads programs.

“The Secure Rural Schools Act fulfills a commitment made by the federal government to rural counties.We need to ensure that the federal government continues that commitment as it is vital to educating our children and providing good and safe roads in California’s rural communities,” said Dahle.
