The story titled “Island Transit seeks input on bus fares” in the May 12 edition was in error.
My husband and I attended the “meeting” on May 16 at the Freeland Library.
What the article had termed a public meeting was an “open house” with no opportunity for those attending to speak publicly or to hear each others comments.
Island Transit staff members brought displays, hand outs and brochures, collected written comments, and spoke individually with the public.
I was told that Island Transit will not be holding a series of public meetings through May as stated in The Record article.
There will be only one opportunity to speak at a public meeting. It will be at the Island Transit Board meeting to be held 9:30 a.m. Monday, May 21 at its facility at 19758 State Highway 20 in Coupeville.
This public meeting was not even mentioned in the article. I encourage those who planned to speak at one of the advertised public meetings to attend the Board Meeting to give their public input.
