draft Draft

Dir. Doyel explained to the Council that the Kings Area Rural Transit (KART) requested to prohibit car parking at certain bus stop locations. They've had trouble providing service to some locations due to cars parked in the bus loading area and it presents a difficulty to serve riders with ADA requirements. He stated there would be no significant costs to the project. It will require some curb painting and installation of signs.

Motion to Approve.
