The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority is sad to announce that former Commissioner George Huvendick passed away on Oct. 4, 2015.
Commissioner Huvendick represented Leavenworth County, Kan., on the KCATA board for forty years, from 1966-1970 and 1978-2014. He served two four-year terms as Chairman in the 1980s and 1990s, and also served on the Board of Directors of the American Public Transportation Association.
“Commissioner Huvendick was influential in the formative years of the agency,” said Robbie Makinen, chairman of the KCATA Board of Commissioners. “In recent years, he also brought historical perspective as the agency strengthened its role as the region’s transportation authority. George demonstrated a strong commitment to the region and to Leavenworth County in his tenure as commissioner.”
