Durham bus buy-out
By JEFF MOYER
A proposed buy-out of the Durham
public transit system by the city of Dur
ham from Duke Power could have a
significant effect on federal funding for
the Chapel Hill Transit system.
Because Duke Power is a privately
owned system ineligible for federal
funds, the money not used by Durham
is allocated to other cities such as Chapel
Hill, said Bob Godding, Chapel Hill
"Chapel Hill competes for limited
federal funds with other cities in North
Carolina." If the Durham system comes
under a public owner, Chapel Hill will
have to share its federal funds, he said.
"The amount of money given to
Durham involves a formula that takes
population into account."
Durham's population would entitle
the city to a large share of the federal
funds the Department of Transporta
tion allocates to the state, he said.

Nunn said Greensboro might also con
tend for federal funds to support a bus
system. "The city of Greensboro is also

It seeks to raise money that will
affect students immediately, Temple

The cost for the new stadium is esti
mated at about $10.8 million plus the
cost of securing the land, Warren said.
The land at the University Ford loca
tion would cost the city about $5 mil
lion and the Briggs Avenue site about
$6.1 million, he said.
"The University Ford location is
going to be difficult to buy because of
all the conditions the owner has pro

portation engineer who is organizing
the city's proposed system, said
Greensboro's size could add to a sig
nificant depletion of available funds
for Chapel Hill if its and Durham's
contracts are signed, he said.
Godding said he was unsure of how
the buy-outs could affect Chapel Hill
because of the unpredictability of fed
eral fund granting.
The federal government will con
tribute up to 50 percent of the operating
costs of the transit system, and the local
funding must make up what the federal
government is unable to pay, Godding
said. If the federal government can't
contribute as much, as would be the
case if Durham and Greensboro were to
purchase transit systems from Duke
Power, decisions would need to be made
locally to increase funding.
There would be three alternatives
for Chapel Hill Transit to take, God
ding said. "We could raise fares, look to
cut expenses or seek additional funding
from local sponsors such as the Univer
sity." Godding would not speculate on
whether fares will increase as a result of
the developments in Greensboro or
Durham. He did point out that the cost
of bus passes had increased this past
year, and the standard bus fare had
to precede Dyke game

mascot, Mikeman Carl Bryan and some
junior varsity cheerleaders, Miller said.

Presley, will be making special appear

Chapel Hill's Public Works Depart
ment has expanded its curbside recy
cling programs throughout Orange
County, and in the future it would like
to implement programs on campus.
The Public Works Department wants
to include the University in its efforts to
recycle city waste, said Blair Pollock,
solid waste planner.
"Years ago, we did have a drop-off
site on campus. We recycled newspa
pers." The Student Environmental Action
Committee (SEAC) and the Tarheel
Aluminum Recycling Program (TARP)
are trying to implement recycling pro
grams on campus, but they have en
countered problems with fire marshals
and health officials, Pollock said. Pub
lic Works has offered to set up a drop
off site on campus and provide a ve
hicle for pick-up, but University offi
cials have yet to make a decision.
Pollock has high hopes for the future
of recycling. "The University has hired
a recycling coordinator, Philip Prete.
This, along with increased environ
mental interest from the SEAC and
TARP, looks good for their future."
Recycling coordinator Wendy

began in October had resulted in 45

The facility would then be funded
and governed by a regional sports au
thority, instead of just Durham county

"Because the complex is located
inside the Durham County line, we
would still be called the Durham Bulls."
