The Detroit News: Oakland County hosts roundtable on Nov. 8 transit ballot measure

Oakland County Executive David Coulter hosted a roundtable on transit Thursday, part of a series of county efforts to educate residents about the countywide millage question voters will decide on the Nov. 8 ballot.

The Oakland Transit Millage proposal — 0.95 mills for 10 years — will fund not only the current Suburban Mobility for Regional Transportation (SMART) bus system but also current programs of the Western Oakland Transportation Authority (WOTA), the North Oakland Transportation Authority (NOTA) and the Older Persons Commission in the Rochester area.
