BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Capital Area Transit System is expanding to additional office space at the nearby Mid City Towers.
The system's board of commissioners approved a two-year lease that begins April 1 for 5,442 square feet. The lease will cost the agency, known as CATS, $73,500 the first year and $79,000 the second year.
Chief Executive Bob Mirabito says new hires have strained the agency's current headquarters on Florida Boulevard.
Most administrative staffers will move to the fifth floor of the new building at 5700 Florida Blvd.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1h70ZW3 ) the old headquarters will continue to house maintenance workers, operations employees and the agency's human resources offices.
