2018 Financial Plan

 

The 2018 budget ensures that Mason Transit Authority continues to meet the needs of the community and operates within its available financial resources. Responsible financial stewardship will be exercised through organizational restructuring, a review of current spending practices, and other cost cutting methods. Sales tax revenue, the single largest funding source for the 2018 budget, continues to show growth over prior periods. Grant awards for the 2017-2019 biennium represent an increase in revenue over the prior period.

 

2018 will see a substantial focus on service delivery optimization.

  • A third party service consultant will be procured to perform a complete service review of the agency early 2018.
  • Investment in modern bus technology is planned; made possible from the receipt of a capital grant.
  • Organizational realignment with a focus on skills necessary to support technology and the future service needs identified in the service review will be implemented.
  • All labor contracts in place, no collective bargaining required for 2018.

 

A copy of the draft budget will be posted prior to the October public hearing at www.masontransit.org/public hearings.
