An agreement between Alton and Madison County Transit is in the works, as the completion of the Multimodal Transportation Center is now expected to be less than a year away.  The two sides are working on an agreement that will spell out rights, responsibilities, and financial details, but the final version is not yet ready.

So a proposed resolution was laid over at last night's Committee of the Whole meeting.  MCT Spokesman S.J. Morrison tells The Big Z he sees their role as providing transportation to tourists, businesspeople, and students.

The city is aiming for a completion date of March 15 of next year, with substantial work to be completed by June 30, 2017.  This was the first week for the new earlier start times for the Committee of the Whole and City Council meetings.  The City Council will meet Wednesday night at 6:30.
