LCC School Bd. votes to move busses

LAUREL — Action items during the Laurel-Concord-Coleridge School board meeting on Monday included the purchase of a school bus, the sale of two used school buses and a raise for administrative staff.

The Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Middle School building in Coleridge was evacuated Thursday as a precautionary measure when a natural gas smell was reported. The smell turned out to be a non-issue and the students were able to return to the building.

Board members placed their approval on a purchase of a 53-passenger school bus.
The purchase amount for the Thomas Bus is $88,175.
The bus should be available before the end of the school year according to Supt. Randall Klooz.
One bid had been received in response to the advertisement that had been placed for the sale of two used school buses, which were Blue Bird buses for the Coleridge location.
Board members accepted the bid of $500 for the 2000 bus and $750 for the 2005 bus. The bid had been submitted by Diana Badley for the EPIC Youth Group, which is a local Christian teen group.
