UG Public Budget Hearing – May 16
Posted by Transit Action Network on May 15, 2013
A public budget hearing for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County is scheduled for May 16th at 7 pm in the UG Commission Chambers at 701 N. 7th Street, KCK (in City Hall). This meeting is an opportunity for transit rider groups to voice their concerns and desires for transit. This meeting is a great opportunity to impress upon the commissioners, especially the newly elected officials and the new mayor, the importance of transit in the UG community.
Rosedale Development Association is one group working to get transit improvements in their area. This week, Erin, from Rosedale Development Assn. (center), took Carroll, Carol, and Pastor Joe (photographer) of Westwood Christian Church to survey Rosedale Ridge Apartment residents about their public transit needs. They discovered many of them do not have cars. They rely on rides from friends or make a long hike to the nearest bus stop (~ 1.5 miles away). TAN supports Rosedale’s efforts and hopes that Wyandotte County is able to extend a bus line into their neighborhood.
