Public Meetings

At its April 19, 2017, meeting, the CATA Board of Directors resolved to suspend the Bus Rapid Transit (“BRT”) project until such time as CATA has reasonable assurances as to the availability of adequate federal funding to support the BRT and authorized the CEO/Executive Director, Sandy L. Draggoo, to take actions to suspend the project on such terms and conditions as she deems necessary and are approved by legal counsel.
