The Auburn City Council voted to eliminate its fledgling bus system during a special called meeting Monday, putting an end to the controversial Auburn Neighborhood Transit after six months of service. The last day A.N.T. will operate is Dec. 28.
The council’s decision Monday came within days of an announcement from the state that the proposed apartment complex the city was banking on to boost its current budget did not receive the $800,000 in tax credit financing needed for the deal. The city created A.N.T. to make the Auburn Hills apartment project more attractive for the Atlanta developers that put in for the low-income housing tax credits.
The developer, which used A.N.T. to boost its Farmington Hills Phase II project near Winder, did receive tax credits for that proposal off Haymon Morris Road.
