The Town of Huntersville is seeking a Huntersville resident (and transit user) for appointment to a two-year term as the town's representative to the Citizen Transit Advisory Group (CTAG).
The CTAG is made up of members of the community appointed by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners, the Charlotte City Council, each of the six Towns in Mecklenburg County, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. Members may not be an elected official and members serve staggered two-year terms.
The Citizens Transit Advisory Group is an advisory committee that reviews the long-range transit system planning and proposed operating and capital programs from the community's perspective, and makes recommendations to the Metropolitan Transit Commission (MTC), the governing board for Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS).
While it is not a policy-making body, its recommendations to the MTC fulfill the requirement levied by the Interlocal Agreement that the MTC ensures public involvement in transit planning.
CTAG meetings usually occur every month from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center (CMGC), 600 E. 4th Street, in room CH-14. These meetings are open to the public.
