We got down to business after breakfast on Wednesday morning. Christy Sammon provided an excellent report from GoRail. Website developer, Stephen Caudill, then rolled out our new GRA website in a very informative presentation. He was followed by Bob Snyder, Senior Director, Procurement, OnmiTRAX. His presentation focused on the procurement process and the changes OmniTRAX has made to streamline their system.
After a short break, Senator David Shafer introduced his vision for the Georgia Rail Program that he plans to introduce during the 2017 legislative session. Finally, a panel of five fielded questions from Mark Middleton and the GRA audience. The panel consisted of Carol Comer, GDOT; Brad Lafevers, HOG; Senator Steve Gooch; Representative Brett Harrell; and Bart Gobeil, GPA.
