RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE DULUTH TRANSIT AUTHORITY TO SELL SUMMER TEEN PASSES AT REDUCED PRICES.

BY COUNCILOR NESS:

        WHEREAS, the Duluth transit authority in 1999 and 2000, with the cooperation of the Northland Foundation and its alliance with youth committee, offered a summer pass for teen riders; and

        WHEREAS, the program was successful for the Duluth transit authority both in terms of revenue and ridership; and

        WHEREAS, the Duluth transit authority desires to continue this program in the year 2001; and

        WHEREAS, the Duluth City Council has held a public hearing on the summer teen pass program as required by Laws of Minnesota, 1969, Chapter 720, Section 6(g);

        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Duluth City Council hereby approves the DTA request to sell a summer teen pass for a reduced price of $30 for the summer or $10 per month for the months of June, July and August, 2001.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes the DTA to sell summer teen passes at a rate of $30 for the entire summer or $10 per month for the months of June, July and August. The DTA enabling legislation requires a public hearing for all discounted or increased fares. This is the third year of the program, and it has proved very successful.
