A last-minute push to expand public transportation in Fort Worth is dead in the water. That's because a few city council members think the proposal breaks a promise to taxpayers.
The City Council had called a public hearing Friday to talk about expanding bus service out on the west side. But there weren't enough council members present to take a vote. A quorum requires six, but only four showed up, and that was intentional.
A couple members skipped the meeting because there's already been a budget process, where the council took public comment and decided how much to cut property taxes. The boycotting members say it's too late to change.
