CEDAR LAKE | The Town Council has approved a request for funding from the South Lake County Community Services Inc.
The council approved a request for $2,900 at Tuesday's business meeting. The funding, to be paid in two installments this year, will come from the miscellaneous services line item in the Town Council budget.
The funding will help support the bus service that the SLCCS provides to Cedar Lake residents and residents of other communities in Lake County.
Ridership fees have also been raised by $1. SLCCS has requested funding from communities whose residents use the service because of increasing costs.
