House legislation would change makeup of both agencies' governing bodies
There is no organization in Utah that is unaccountable for huge sums of money
than UTA.I managed finances for a van pool at one time and UTA could
never even track our expenses correctly. It was simply amazing how bad their
accounting systems are.
Something must change, but political appointments is not the way to go. UTA has
a long history of completely disregarding the needs of its riders. UTA
routinely ignores the comments and concerns of people who actually ride the bus.
UTA continues to cut service to Davis County because they apparently believe
that only Salt Lake County deserves bus service.
Rep. Gregory Hughes needs to step down, from the board all so. There needs to be
citizens from the community, that use the bus, trax. UTA has Good Bus Service in
Down Town Salt Lake, in the Avenues and the University of Utah. UTA has
Destroyed the Bus System in the rest of Salt Lake County. Individuals that are real estate development, construction/property
management, needs to step down also. What Taxpayer paying for.
Congratulations,The decision to remove elected officials and replace
them with political appointees will ensure that the existing corruption can
continue with less oversight. It would appear to be more of the same. As a huge proponent of mass transit, it is sad to see that it has become
overrun with self serving individuals. Someone explain how more appointees given
seats for political favors will benefit the organization more than elected
officials who must answer to the public for their decisions.
