Township voters on May 3 approved a 0.95-mill transportation tax, which includes 0.45 mill for the Harbor Transit service.
Based on discussions by the group, the preliminary date for service to begin for residents of Grand Haven Township is Jan. 1, 2012.
“I think that’s fine,” Grand Haven Township Manager Bill Cargo said. “We’ll begin to collect money on Dec. 1.”
The new authority also discussed the format of the new service.
“I think the appropriate thing is going to be on-demand service,” Harbor Transit Director Tom Manderscheid said.
