Student Government Association's developing plans have not lost momentum with an incoming executive board and new senators for the upcoming academic year.
The SGA senate passed two resolutions Wednesday, both unanimously with votes of 33-0.
The first vote approved a budget of $675 to fund the Minnetrista Farmers Market Project, an initiative aiming to make students aware of the Farmers Market during Welcome Week and parent orientation.
About half of those funds will be used to promote the program, with $300 allocated to “strategic communications,” according to the resolution and author Kyleigh Snavely.
As for the remaining money, $150 is set aside for social media, $90 for design services and $129 for bus operations for transportation from campus to the farmers market.
Any remaining funds will go back to the SGA senate budget, Snavely said in the resolution.
The Office of Orientation agreed to partner with SGA and plans on including information for parents about the farmers market on day two of freshman orientation.
The resolution says the main goals for this project are “promoting healthy food choices” and increase “further involvement in the community.”
The second approved item was a resolution proposing extension of the blue loop bus, and possibly adding a new bus, with a route stretching to the Cooper Physical Science Building year-round.

SGA has met with the Office of Transportation regarding this resolution before.
At-large senator Trevor Holland favors the new bus system.
“I think this will really benefit a lot of students on campus,” Holland said.
If the resolution is enacted, the blue loop buses will run on campus whenever class is in session and is intended to assist off-campus students.
