Thank you for your feedback. General discussion between multiple people around a given topic is often difficult to transcribe word for word. The intent of the notes is to convey all the main topics of discussion and any decisions that are being considered or made during the meeting to keep everyone in the loop, to the best of our ability. Since we are very early in the process, sometimes answers, details, or direction are not clear at the time of the meeting. We can certainly look into some alternate options for future meetings, and/or will try to include more specifics or details, when possible.
Please see the answer to Question 3. This process will be defined and established by the Authority for the needs of the District.
While it may seem like everything is happening very quickly, the intent of current meetings and forward movement is two-fold. 1) Byers, Strasburg, and Bennett all need to work together effectively as we are all getting busier and seeing increases in demands on all our resources currently. We all aim to serve the citizens on the corridor and ensure a safe and effective working environment for all of our staff 2) In an effort to brainstorm, plan, and address anticipated questions that the Boards will have as the process moves forward. Please keep in mind that there are a lot of people dedicating a great deal of thought, consideration, and time to all of these topics to find the best path forward with the goal of impacting our service areas and employees positively. There are still rumors, misconceptions, and misinformation being circulated - so please utilize the resources we are providing for reliable information.
Budgets can also be requested from the respective agency as they are public record. For convenience sake, we have posted as a link above with the other resources.
The Chiefs are reviewing every submission and are aware that these conversations can be difficult, which is why these forms were created. Please remember you can also still talk to your Chiefs and have internal discussions as well, if desired.
