The Board recessed and then reconvened at the Service Center location at 811 D Ave, Vinton. They conversed with Brock Grenis, Transit Administrator with ECICOG, Dana Burmeister, Benton County Transportation Director, County Engineer and the City Streets Superintendent to discuss the location of the new Transportation Building.
