Stampleman Puts Bus on City Council Agenda

The de-railed 76 Bus made a stop on the Rye City Council agenda. Arthur Stampleman sent the following update for readers:

"The bus was not on last [Wednesday] night's City Council agenda. However, in the time when the public can speak on matters not on the agenda, I brought up the subject. I asked the council whether they were going to take any action, now that Albany approved a bus that does not come to Milton Point whereas a public hearing showed strong public interest in such a bus. This allowed Councilwoman Catherine Parker to present a resolution asking the County Executive to restore service – she had otherwise been prevented from putting the resolution on the agenda. While there was disagreement on some details in her resolution, the Council arrived at a resolution which was approved unanimously.

There is still some way to go before we get a bus. A key next step should be for the mayor to use the resolution in frank negotiations with the County Executive. When you have had a chance to see the actual resolution or news reports, I suggest you compliment the Council in general for taking this decision and urge the mayor in particular to press the point with White Plains.

  1. Perhaps Stapleman has offered a solid idea where else Westchester County can make cuts instead instead of this bus ? Everybody demands the County preserve their favored spending but never offers a better idea where the money can be found to pay for it .

    Imagine that !

    NY state is virtually bankrupt and Westchester not much better . Look at the report JP Morgan put out last week on muni finance that was so depressing they decided to hide it .
