The Jordan-Elbridge Transport program is in need of volunteer drivers - now more than ever. The town board recently signed on to join the Onondaga County Office of Aging, Centro/Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation and others in creating a coordinated transportation program - "United We Ride" - for seniors and the disabled.
"The beauty of this type of coordination is that it will free up our vehicle to return to Elbridge and transport others while OSCAR (Onondaga Senior Call-A-Ride Service) completes a leg of our run, and it will save on fuel as well as wear and tear on the JET," Councilor Rita Dygert said.
To become involved, call Dygert at 689-9461 or the town clerk's office at 689-9031.
Year-end, organizational meetings scheduled
The Elbridge Town Board will hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. Dec. 28 to pay bills and address other year-end business. The organizational meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Jan. 5, when the board plans to appoint a new board member to replace outgoing councilor George Betts. Betts was elected town justice in November.
The board will also change its meeting dates to the second and fourth Thursday of the month for 2011.
