The Washougal City Council issued a vote of confidence for local C-TRAN board member Linda Dietzman during a meeting last night, while the Camas City Council expressed a general consensus that the current bus service should be preserved.
The Camas discussions occurred during a workshop, so no vote was taken.
The talks affirmed that the two-tenths of a percent sales tax increase should be on the November ballot.
The most important thing we can do right now is to preserve the bus service we have, said Camas councilwoman Dietzman.
The Washougal council vote of 3 to 2, included opposition by Jon Russell and Michael Delavar. Dave Shoemaker and Jennifer McDaniel had excused absences.
The resolution, written by Councilman Paul Greenlee, mentions that Dietzman has spent the time and effort to become a knowledgeable and well-informed board member.
