Longview, TX — A little more than nine years ago, Longview Transit became the city’s designated public transportation provider and Councilman Daryl Williams was there, serving on the newly-created Public Transportation Advisory Committee.
Williams was there Tuesday for his final PTAC meeting.
Because of term limitations, the senior city councilman is not seeking re-election.
Williams received accolades from members of the advisory committee, led by Chairman Steve Crane, who said Williams was a driving force in the creation of Longview’s public transportation system.
“Thank you,” Crane told Williams, “for all you have done.”
As part of recognizing the ninth birthday of Longview Transit, Director of Operations Taquita Mumphrey told committee members the transportation system was recently awarded McDonald Transit’s first place safety award for operating the company’s safest paratransit system in 2011.
