The public can visit
www.capcil.org to fill out the survey.
"The Transit Partnership Group feels that including Menard County

of Central Illinois, is serving as team leader for the effort.
The next meeting has been scheduled for Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. The
public is invited to attend and join the group's efforts. For more
