Metropolitan Council, the regional governing body for the Twin Cities, has announced appointments to advisory groups including the Transportation Accessibility Advisory Committee. The council relies on its committees to help develop solutions to regional challenges and bring diverse perspectives to the council’s policymaking and operations.
The Transportation Accessibility Advisory Committee (TAAC) advises the council on management policies for public transportation services in the region from the perspective of riders with disabilities. The committee includes riders and advocates for older people and the disability community, as well as representatives of service providers and other appropriate agencies.
Four incumbents were appointed to the TAAC. They are Jeffrey Dains, Lauderdale; Darrell Paulsen, Maplewood; Kari Sheldon, St. Paul and John Clark, Inver Grove Heights.
