Despite the multimillion dollar deficit for the upcoming fiscal year, there were no cuts made to any services. However, several residents told council members they were not happy with a proposed fee change for bus service for seniors and the disabled.
Residents said they were upset that the fares for seniors and disabled people would go from a voluntary donation to a $2 fare per ride.
David Kriske, the city’s assistant community development director of transportation, said the fare amount was proposed as a way to help the city recover some of the costs of operating the service.
“[Paying] $2 one way and $2 another way, $4 per trip is just a little bit too much,” resident Camille Feigan said

Don’t these council members still get a car allowance?
