Flossmoor has appointed the newest board member for the South Suburban Mass Transit District, a local governmental agency that owns parking lots along Metra’s Electric Line.
Richard Bumstead was unanimously appointed at the Sept. 18 village board meeting. Bumstead, a Flossmoor resident, is currently chair of the village’s Public Art Commission, which maintains the community’s sculpture garden.
Mayor Paul Braun said Bumstead has no experience in transportation but has been an Electric Line commuter for a number of years.
