KAT fares to increase
WILLMAR -- Starting Jan. 2 it will cost more to ride a Kandiyohi Area Transit bus.
The additional revenue will help offset a $30,000 budget shortfall that was caused by high fuel prices and reduced state revenue for operations expenses.
"We can't go in the hole," said Kandiyohi County Commissioner Dean Shuck, and a member of KAT's joint power's board, which gave final approval to the rate increase on Friday.
