  • Date: 12/29/2021

"Quarterly, before COVID, we met with the Lewis County Transportation Task Force that is made up of multiple human service agencies and transportation services ... and we put our heads together to figure out where the gaps are," Mrs. Buell said. "One of the services that came up is looking into van pool services."
