Save Our SEATS

To be delivered to Iowa City Council and Johnson County Board of Supervisors

Petition Statement

Please continue funding Johnson County SEATS as they are currently structured, with all services under one roof. This will keep tax costs down, continue uninterrupted services with one call convenience, and retain the current SEATS employees who have vast experience working with users who have diverse disablities and needs.
There are currently 1,464 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Johnson County Seats has been providing paratransit services for the elderly and people with disabilities since the mid-1970's. SEATS has been my main means of transportation for 17 years. Currently they are providing close to 500 rides a day and the demand is growing. Iowa City and the Johnson County Board of Supervisors are threatening to dismantle SEATS. Hundreds of people with disabilities, as well as their families, friends, and support systems, would be negatively impacted by this financially and politically driven decision.
