Common Council To Consider Reorganisation Of Transit And Parking

Common Council will be hearing a joint presentation tonight from Saint John Transit and the Parking Commission on options for reorganisation. 

They range from the status quo to outright amalgamation with the two budgets being integrated into one. In that setup, there would be a general manager overseeing the whole operation and separate managers for transit and parking. 

Transit service costs the city 5 million dollars a year while parking administration generate 1.3 million dollars in revenue for the city. 

Council is also being told the Trade and Convention Centre is operating an overall deficit of more than 830 thousand dollars.
