Tony MacRobert from SCCoG reported that we are waiting for tires for the Vans before they can be released. One van will stay in Sierra County and the other will go to Socorro County. There will be a meeting March 14th in EB to set up a Regional Work Group (RWG) in Sierra County in accordance with the Long-Range Statewide Transit Plan (more info on meeting will be posted as soon as it is available). Tony will send a copy of the plan to SHC which will be posted on the website.
