Mayor Len Augustine and BAC Member Jim Fisk Recognized

At the October 10th STA Board Meeting, the Board presented the following proclamations thanking STA Board Member, Vacaville's Mayor Len Augustine, and Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) Member, Jim Fisk, for their years of service working with the STA.
Mayor Augustine served on the STA Board for 15 years and has been a strong supporter of programs initiated by the STA including Safe Routes to School, Solano Mobility, Solano Napa Commuter Information, and SolanoExpress. During his term on the Board, Mayor Augustine has been a leader and proactive advocate for projects benefiting the City of Vacaville and Solano County, including the I-80/I-680/SR 12 Interchange, the Eastbound Cordelia Truck Scales, Vacaville Transit Center, Jepson Parkway in Vacaville, and the Fairfield/Vacaville Train Station.
Jim Fisk served on the BAC for the last 25 years, longer than any member of STA’s Citizen Advisory Committees. He has served and supported various bicycle projects, helped identify projects in the Top Ten Bicycle Rides brochure and supported the Countywide Bike Plan. STA recognizes and thanks Jim Fisk for his many efforts and accomplishments on behalf of Solano County’s cycling community.
