Washington schools look at new way to get buses
from Washington Times Herald
Washington Community Schools are hoping to soon be able to purchase some newer buses, if all goes as planned. Brock Bowsher with Umbaugh and Associates explained to the board that general obligation or GO bonds could be issued to help cover the cost of replacing some of the buses in the corporation's fleet, and will reduce the number of buses needed to be leased from other outfits. School transportation director Gary Puckett said the corporation currently has two buses that are at least 12 years old. The state has no issue, Bowsher said, with corporations running older buses but instead of an annual inspection, buses that surpass the dozen mark in age must be inspected twice a year.
