NOW HIRING – at Finney County Transit, we are still looking to add a couple of CDL drivers with passenger endorsement to our crew. We need both City Link route and Mini-Bus drivers. We also will be needing a driver for our Senior Center trips in the springtime.
TAX TIME is approaching. RSVP volunteers will once again be providing free income tax filing services this year. This will be a drop-off type service again this year, due to COVID-19. For more information, call Marty or Annette at 275-5566.
