Did anyone else notice the irony of the city diverting funds from "...money previously earmarked for an airport road construction project..." to save the bus system?
It appears to me that there is an inherent contradiction in their planning process.
I mean, on the same front page, they have two articles.
1.) Bend to keep weekend bus service.
2.) Area aviation officials say they'll survive Cessna's departure.
As I said before, I so pleased for them. But apparently they'll survive with roads that have big potholes. (I know, it was road improvements, but you know what I mean.)
So they would rather have mostly empty buses running on weekends, than support infrastructure involving the airport.
You almost have to wonder if they got together and said, "Well. We don't have to please those Cessna people anymore. And traffic is going down, down. So let's take that money and save the buses....again.
How did the BAT become a sacred cow?
