Approval of Minutes of February 4, 2015
The minutes of the February, 2015 meeting of the Commissioners were unanimously approved.  

Public Comment
Members of the public who wished to address the Commissioners were asked to do so.  There were none.   

AVL Pilot Update
Ms. Carroll noted that pilot testing was completed successfully.  We are now moving to full fleet installation.

She further informed the Commissioners that it was brought to our attention that an application containing NTD route information was available on ITunes.  Further investigation confirmed that an unauthorized inaccurate application of our system-wide route schedules did exist and formal notification for removal is in progress.  

CMAQ Application
Ms. Morton reported that the State would be entertaining applications for CMAQ funding and that there was rejuvenated interest in this round of funding on behalf of West Avenue Developers and the City of Norwalk.  The Office of Economic Development is leading the coordination effort with hopes of reaching a unified objective for the grant application process.  

Restructuring Plan Phase 1
Ms. Morton presented the details of the first phase of the restructuring plan.  The plan received unanimous support from the Commissioners. 

CEO Update
Ms. Morton reported her participation with the City of Norwalk Emergency Management Team which involved Desktop participation as an 'observer' in a FEMA 'Active Shooter' exercise.

Ms. Morton reported that she was very close to final response to the Union on the subject matter of prescription coverage as it relates to the Unfair Labor practice filing.  She is hopeful that a successful resolution would be forthcoming. 

She advised a scope of work was currently under preparation for broker services as this process was last performed in 2008.

Other Business
No other business was noted.

Adjournment
The meeting adjourned at 10:05 am.
