Two new members have joined the TAPS Public Transit (Texoma Area Paratransit System) board of directors. Grayson County Judge Bill Magers and Montague County Judge Rick Lewis began two year terms on January 28.
Sherman Mayor Cary Wacker returns to the board after a two year hiatus.
TAPS CEO and Executive Director, Brad Underwood, said the work of the board of directors goes largely unseen by the public. “These are volunteer jobs by very busy people,” said Underwood. “Providing guidance and oversight for a $25 million agency is no small responsibility. There are big decisions to be made that affect over a million people who depend on public transportation.”
Bill Magers, began his term as Grayson county judge in January takes the board position of former Grayson county treasurer, Trent Bass. In Montague County, County Judge Rick Lewis replaced community advocate, Wanda Wood.
TAPS is guided by a board of directors representing cities and counties in its primary 7 county service area.
