Program: Update on the Proposed  Independent Transit Authority

Speakers: Jim Zepp and Jerry Garson.   During the last state legislative
session, the County Executive requested e
nabling legislation to establish a
new County transit agency with the power to raise additional property taxes,
manage transit operations, and exercise eminent domain.  The legislation
was subsequently withdrawn
and the Transit Task Force reconvened to
consider changes to last year's proposal.  
Come learn about the latest
plans for the "
Independent Transit Authority 2.0" and how it might affect
and your property taxes.
