LaPorte County Council needs to back buses

I greatly appreciate LaPorte County Council members' time and energy with the concerned parties on the vital nature of transportation services for the needy to health care services in our county. We have been supportive of this service over the past 12 years in underwriting about $720,000 of the cost of transportation services.

We look forward to the council's ongoing efforts to continue this vital service that meets in a compassionate way facilitating the treatment needs of our community members.

I support Michiana Resources taking over all the services of the Council on Aging and ask the County Council to support a one-time appropriation of $100,000 to help the transition.

I know our medical staff has had the support of the Council on Aging services and that a continuation of these services is invaluable to their patients.
