Rockland council to hear about public transportation

By Stephen Betts | Jan 02, 2018

Rockland — The Rockland City Council will hear an update Wednesday night on public transportation for the community.

Waldo County Community Action Partners is scheduled to appear before the council. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.

City Manager Tom Luttrell said the organization has expressed interest in a location for a bus stop. The small buses used by the Belfast-based organization run to Pen Bay Medical Center and the supermarkets but wants a downtown location for a bus stop.

Also on the agenda are an update from the comprehensive planning commission, from Rockland Heart & Soul, and Rockland Main Street Inc.

The official Rockland City website calendar refers to an Agenda Setting Meeting on 03 January and a City Council Meeting on 08 January.  If the process has been changed, the public needs to know so that they can attend the appropriate meeting.  Thank you for your information about getting on an e-mail is the "public" supposed to know about this new "change?"

Lynne Barnard you can call and have your name added to the agenda email that is sent out ahead of the meeting.

The meeting has discussions before he regular meeting this week, which is a change in how things are done.

Wait a minute...isn't Wednesday's meeting to be an Agenda Setting Meeting for the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting on Monday, 08 January 2018?????  It was my belief during the last of many meetings I attended in December that there is to be a lot more than just public transportation and Rockland Main Street Inc. on the agenda for the January Council Meeting.
