Kenosha County will hold a public hearing to review its 2014 grant applications for transportation on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 1 p.m. at the Community Library, 24615 89th St., Salem. Applications are being submitted for Wisconsin Specialized Transportation Assistance Grant (s. 85.21 WI Statute) for elderly and disabled transportation programs and federal operating assistance under Section 5311 of the Federal Transit Act for a project generally described below. Federal and state aid is being sought for three county transportation programs: Western Kenosha County Transit, Care-A-Van, and Volunteer Transportation Services for 2014. Each of these services caters to a different population group based on their needs, abilities, and geographic location. Western Transit offers accessible, door-to-door and fixed-route service operating mainly west of Interstate 94 in Kenosha County. Care-A-Van provides door-to-door paratransit services to Kenosha County residents east of Interstate 94. Volunteer Transportation Services organizes and recruits volunteer drivers to provide rides to older adults and persons with a disability that have difficulty using public transportation. Plan and grant application drafts are available for public inspection prior to the hearing at the Aging & Disability Resource Center, 8600 Sheridan Road, Kenosha. Persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations to attend or in need of transportation to/from the event should contact Lane Masoud, 262-605-6615.
