Lismore Community







30 May 2007


Chair Norma Black presented her annual report to a full committee and representatives of the user groups. She said the bus had been well used over the past year and with the opening of Ionad Naomh Moluag Museum this was expected to grow. She thanked all the volunteer drivers (there are now well over twenty) without whose time there would be no community transport. She thanked Secretary Barbara MacDougall, Treasurer Hubert Saldhana and the committee members for their hard work and support. Dave Meddes reported on the continuing driver training programme and said that the original drivers would be coming up for refresher courses this year. In the Treasurerís report Hubert Saldhana said that there was now need for new funding after a drop in income between 2006/2007. There are applications in the pipe line but new funding will have to be found or new tariffs set. The Community Transport is not profit making but the bus is expensive to maintain and unexpected expenses could crop up at any time. It was suggested that some coordination with user groups, especially the Museum, could introduce inclusive tariffs covering entry to the Museum, island tour and bus hire. The committee and officers were all re-elected unopposed.
