ST. PETERSBURG - The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will host a series of interactive telephone town hall meetings to share information and gather feedback about Pinellas County's transit future.
Residents from all over the county will receive automated calls inviting them to participate, and anyone can dial in to listen and make their voice heard. Participants will be able to ask questions, both on the call and through social media channels.
The first town hall meeting will take place on Thursday, July 24 at 10 a.m. The call will feature Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala and will be moderated by PSTA CEO Brad Miller. The call-in number is 1-877-229-8493. Pin number is 19878.
This will be the first of three telephone town hall meetings in the month of July; the others will take place the following week with PSTA Board Chair Ken Welch, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long and Largo Vice Mayor Harriet Crozier.
The second town hall is Tuesday, July 29, 7:15 p.m. The final one is scheduled on Thursday, July 31, 7:15 p.m.
"We're bringing vital information about Greenlight Pinellas right to the people - and giving them a chance to share their opinions and thoughts at the same time," said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. "We've already incorporated feedback from 120,000 Pinellas residents into the Greenlight Pinellas plan, but we're excited to hear directly from even more people about our county's transit future."
Participants can ask questions during or in advance of the call by tweeting to @Greenlight2014 or @RidePSTA, or on the Greenlight Pinellas or PSTA Facebook pages.
