Tonight, Public Transit Discussion
Updated: Sep 30, 2022
Friendly reminder: The Emmet County Board of Commissioners will convene a special meeting at 6:30 p.m., 9/29, in the Petoskey Middle School Auditorium to discuss transit. (AGAIN!)
There is talk about establishing a Transit Authority, but it is unknown if a vote will be taken, tonight, on moving toward establishing such an authority or putting the kibosh to such a lame idea.
By way of reminder, the Commissioners voted to end EMGO due to "empty buses," and due to the exorbitant cost that was involved in financing a public transit system that was overwhelmingly used by City of Petoskey residents. It was not a county-wide-friendly paradigm, which is one reason that 9 Townships have submitted letters/public comment of opposition to the Transit Authority. Also 65 letters/public comment have been submitted in opposition to a TA in contrast to 30 letters/public comment in favor.
See the correspondence here.
Despite that solid bloc of communication from the fiscally-responsible taxpayers, the mainstream media endlessly pushes a pro-transit and pro-transit authority narrative.
Take a stand against media bias and a waste of public monies, please attend the special meeting. Politely speak out, or send an email to your commissioner before 6:30 tonight.
