BAKER, La. (AP) - Baker officials say it's time that their city's interests are represented on the parish bus system's board of directors.
And now that the Capital Area Transit System has two vacancies to fill as a result of recent resignations, some see it as a perfect opportunity to put a Baker resident on the board.
The Advocate reports Metro Councilwoman Chauna Banks-Daniel is asking the council to give special consideration to appointing a Baker resident to the CATS board. The request is in the form of a resolution that will be voted on at Wednesday's council meeting.
Banks-Daniel, who represents a large part of Baker, said she thinks one seat should be reserved for a Baker resident.
