Council discusses unmet transit needs

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 —Lassen transportation staff met with the Lassen County Transportation Commission Social Service Transportation Advisory Council.

During a Tuesday, Feb. 24 meeting, representatives from county social services had a public hearing on unmet transit needs.

According to Kelly Mumper, county transportation planner, the public hearing is required under the Transportation Development Act, which provides funding for county streets and roads in counties with fewer than 500,000 people. However, the county must identify any unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet before allocating the funds.
