SACKETS HARBOR A new bus is on the schools wish list.
At the district Board of Education meeting, board members approved that a proposition to purchase a 66-passenger diesel school bus would appear at the May annual meeting and budget vote.
Superintendent Frederick E. Hall Jr. said the nine buses in the districts fleet are on a nine -year rotation.
We came under last years purchase price with $109,000, he reported to the board.
The board also approved selling a bus that is valued at $14,500. The sale will go toward buying the new bus.
Its the last Caterpillar engine to go out of our fleet, Mr. Hall said.
