Cortland legislators will hold a Budget and Finance committee meeting tomorrow, where they’ll take an initial vote on recommending the extension of a partnership with Seven Valley Health Coalition to administer advertising services on county-owned buses through December 31, 2020.
A resolution will now be included in the agenda at next Thursday’s meeting of the full legislature (June 25).
In 2010, the County was awarded grant funding to update its mobility management system and increase transportation services.
Officials say they’re working on a new operating software designed to make scheduling and routing of services less complex and more user friendly for both First Transit and several other local agencies.
Other mobility services being addressed through this funding include expanding the bus route system and installing more bus shelters within the County.
Sixty percent (60%) of the rental space revenue on Cortland County-owned buses is retained by Seven Valleys Health Coalition – 10% as an administration fee and 50% to offset the local match for the Mobility Management System).
The remaining forty percent (40%) of the rental space revenue is allocated to Cortland County.
