Supes to Examine Ag Worker Carpool Program

The county will be examining ways to keep the Agricultural Worker Transportation Program up and running after state funding expires in June 2011. The program, designed to make the roads safer by taking poorly maintained vehicles and often untrained drivers off the streets, is not viable, said Public Works Director Scott McGolpin this week. The supervisors are hoping to saddle up to a potential statewide program and are also looking for other ways to offset the costs of the program, which have grown since being implemented two-and-a-half years ago.
