Washtenaw: Transit

The Detroit News reports that the state might lose $25 million in federal funds for a Woodward Avenue street car, in part because Washtenaw County commissioners have pulled support for a regional transit authority. From the report: “The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution this month saying the county wants to manage its own transportation systems and funds and let voters decide whether to join the authority. Ann Arbor and several townships opted against forming a countywide bus system. ‘The whole thing is kind of coming apart,’ said state Rep. Mark Ouimet, R-Scio Township.” [Source] The county board took this  action at its Nov. 7, 2012 meeting.
