At the January 22 meeting, the Laketran Board of Trustees unanimously re-elected Brian Falkowski, of Concord, as Board President to a fourth, one-year term and Paul E. Miller, of Mentor, as Vice President for a third, one-year term for 2018. President Falkowski has been a Laketran Trustee since June 2011 and Vice President Miller has served on the Laketran Board since May 2012.
Following the roll call vote, both men said they were honored to serve the Laketran Board of Trustees for another year in the two leadership positions and thanked their colleagues for their support.
“This is a great board to work with and I am honored to continue as President. In the past year we successfully hired a new General Manager and launched our new alternative fueled propane fleet,” shared Falkowski. “This year, we are excited to explore how we may better serve the Tyler Boulevard corridor to help local businesses recruit and retain talent.”
Miller also commented on Laketran’s progress stating, “I’m very proud of how this agency, while small compared to larger urban transit systems, works hard at keeping up to date with technology that makes operations more efficient. I look forward to the evaluation and implementation of mobile ticketing and prepayment for our Dial-a-Ride customers this upcoming year to improve the customer experience and streamline our fare collection process.”
