Battle Creek Applying For Funds To Keep Transit System Running
The City of Battle Creek is once again seeking federal and state funds to help keep their transit system running.
The Battle Creek City Commission will be considering Tuesday a resolution which would authorize the City Manager to apply for the funds from the Michigan Department of Transportation, for Fiscal Year 2019. The city would be applying for around $1.4 million, which would cover an estimated 37% of the Battle Creek Transit System’s budget.
The City says that this assistance is needed to meet the goal of providing public transportation for citizens.
