Should CARTS Funding Going to Vote of the People?

The Borough assembly last night and introduced a resolution to send the future of non-departmental funding for the Central Rural Area Transit System or CARTS to a vote people this October. Assembly member Mako Haggerty…


Asm. Haggerty(S. Pen): “This is brought to us by Assemblymen [Brent] Johnson(Clam Gulch), and he essentially he just wants a advisory vote on a non-departmental funding. He said that between 2002 and 2005 it has been funded to the tune of $50,000 per year, most of the time it has been funded to the tune of $25,000 per year by the borough. He’s received a lot of input that that’s probably not something his constituents want, so this would be asking the borough to vote on that.”


Assembly member Hal Smalley of Kenai had asked to have the resolution removed from the assembly’s consent agenda and moved to postpone the resolution to the July 2nd assembly meeting.
