The Oakland Press: Oakland Co. transit millage promises expanded services

The campaign for a countywide transit millage includes such lures as a lower tax bill and expanded coverage. Those two incentives don’t apply to everyone.

Thursday evening’s telephone town hall hosted by Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter emphasized the benefits, though he acknowledged expanded coverage won’t happen quickly. Coulter included SMART General Manager Dwight Ferrell and Highland Township Supervisor Rick Hamill, who is also board president for Western Oakland Transportation Authority (WOTA).
