Posted on January 28, 2013

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Though the Johnson County board of supervisors has subsidized Iowa City and Coralville’s portion of the cost for the SEATS paratransit program for the last several years, Johnson County Supervisor Rod Sullivan told KCRG that the program has become too expensive for the county to continue to support on its own.

The county has subsidized several hundred thousand dollars a year for Iowa City and about $100,000 dollars a year for Coralville. Another county official said that the program will need at least $2.4 million in fiscal year 2014 to maintain the service it is already providing. For the full story, click here.
