but not all happy

Issues of transportation seem to be everywhere over the past while.

On Nov. 28, council universally approved the 2012 budget for the town, but not all are happy with how things worked out, particularly the Rocky View Regional Handibus Society (RVRHS).

Requesting $69,000 from the town to help fund a service that transports seniors and the physically impaired, RVRHS saw only $40,000 be approved in the budget by council.

“We need to know if Cochrane wants this,” said RVRHS general manager, Paul Siller. “We want a firm motion from (council) that they are in it for the long haul.”
