(Community Matters 47) Frisbie: County Transit Authority Proposal ‘Will Probably Pass’

First Aired September 2, 2023

Calhoun County Vice-Chair, Commissioner Steve Frisbie tells Community Matters the latest attempt at establishing a transit authority in the county “will probably pass”.

The question was removed from the agenda at a County Board of Commissioners meeting earlier in the summer of 2023 after it appeared not to have enough support among municipalities in Calhoun County.

Since then, the city of Battle Creek passed a measure officially asking the county to take it up again – and pass it. Some other municipalities have also supported the concept. County commissioners are expected to take up the question again in September.

Commissioner Frisbie talks about that and other agenda items with Community Matters in this update.
