Grays Harbor Transit Authority eliminates Weekend Service

The Grays Harbor Transit Authority passed Service Option 1 which eliminates weekend service. The option removes four full time runs, service to Centralia and eight hours of SVS service Monday through Friday. The Authority also passed a resolution that will put a one tenth of one percent raise on the sales and use tax.

The option entails laying off eight employees including six drivers, one maintenance person and one part time customer service person. Authority Member Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson said how hard it was to make the job cuts but there was no way around it.

Grays Harbor Transit is currently over expending revenues by an average of about 79,000 dollars per month but this option will save approximately 74,000 per month. The changes will come into effect September third, and the tax will be on the ballot this November.
