Today's County Commission Full Board notes from me (pre-meeting)

Not too much happening at the full board today except this MATS $1,215,023 application.
When we expanded bus routs last year, how much did it cost and how many people rode compared to the cost.

I'll ask the question.

Will I get an answer?

The Transportation Committee met on January 20, 2011; it was recommended, and I:

Move to approve the Muskegon Area Transit System's FY2012 application for $1,215,023 in state operating and capital assistance, to authorize the Resolution of Intent to apply for financial assistance, to name the County Administrator as the Transportation Coordinator, and to publish the public notice.

Move to approve Supplemental Agreement NO.7 to Lease No. HSCG84-06-LC34002, extending the lease agreement between the County and U.S. Coast Guard for the Air Facility located at the Airport, through FY2016, in the amount of $l,778.32jmonth, and further authorize the Chairman to execute said Supplemental Agreement.

Move to approve allowing Purchasing to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) on behalf of the Airport, seeking a concessionaire to sell advertising space inside the terminal bUilding.

Move to approve allOWing the Purchasing Department to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP), on behalf of the Airport, seeking proposals from experienced firms to proVide Air Service Development, Recruitment, Consulting and Market Research for the Airport.

Muskegon Commissioners vote yes

Muskegon Commissioners vote yes
"Muskegon County has added 5 new county commissioners.

They have been on the job for less than 30 days and already new commissioner Alan Jager has earned the reputation as a NO man.

What I wonder is WHY he is the only one?"

Great question!
We need more commissioners like Alan Jager and more interested citizens like Susie!
