SECOND PUBLIC HEARING ON FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION GRANT APPLICATION


Douglasville, Georgia – The second public hearing regarding Douglas County submitting a federal grant application for its mobility/transit services will be at 10 a.m. November 6 as part of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners' regular meeting. The first meeting was held October 16 as part of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners' regular meeting. The meeting will be held in Citizens' Hall in the Douglas County Courthouse at 8700 Hospital Drive, Douglasville, Georgia.

The Douglas County Board of Commissioners, through its Multi-Modal Transportation Services Division, is applying for Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality funds from the Federal Transit Administration.
