Council derails bus idea

The Common Council yesterday sent back to committee a proposal that the city help fund a county Canal St. bus route. It appears the only reason the bad bus idea wasn't sent off outright to that great legislative scrap yard in the sky is that Ald. Jim Witkowiak, a sponsor of the measure, did not attend the council meeting and his colleagues wanted to give him a chance to address the issue.

In light of the newly-discovered county surplus that would allow it to fund its own routes, the council's move seem especially wise.
