Final 2015 SRTC Board Meeting on Dec. 10

The final SRTC Board meeting of the year is next Thursday, December 10 at 1 p.m. A few items on
the agenda: disposition of depreciated assets (how to get rid of a bunch of stuff around the office we don't need anymore), appointment of new Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) members, recognizing members who are leaving the Board and a discuss of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Guidebook. That last item should be a very interesting discussion as SRTC is proposing some policies to ensure that all the federal funds that come into our area get spend every year. It's harder than it sounds to actually make that happen because of all the boxes that require checking before money can actually be spent.

So if any of those items sound interesting to you, feel free to attend the meeting. The agenda is here.
