Program: Update on the Proposed Independent Transit Authority
Speakers: Jim Zepp and Jerry Garson. During the last state legislative
session, the County Executive requested enabling 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was subsequently withdrawn and the Transit Task Force reconvened to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
you and your property taxes.
