BATON ROUGE - The parish bus system's governing board began a series of meetings Thursday to discuss how to move the system forward following a recent report that recommended replacing CATS' top managers with contracted employees from a transit management firm.

The Advocate reports some members of the Capital Area Transit System's Board of Directors expressed skepticism about the report by TMG Consulting, questioning whether the firm's recommendations were based on a fair assessment of the bus system's operations.

CATS Chief Financial Officer Gary Owens said there were many inaccuracies in TMG's presentation. For example, he said, the report took issue with CATS budget because it said it did not include employee pay raises.

CATS Chief Executive Officer Brian Marshall said the bus system has been consistently improving under his management team.
