The Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority underwent a surprise inspection last week after an anonymous complaint about some practices.
"We are expecting some letter that defines their findings, tells us what needs to be corrected and an amount of a fine," said Tom Dugan, CARTA's executive director.
Tennessee Occupational Safety & Health inspectors found two violations, Dugan said. He said the transportation department had a grinder out of adjustment and also had a monitor in a maintenance area that needed to be installed permanently.
He said both items have been corrected. He said the department expects to pay a minimal fine for the violations. It would be the first time in about 10 years CARTA has been fined, Dugan said.
Dugan said the inspector also is mulling over whether the department needs to use jackstands when buses are on lifts for maintenance.
