RCS buys 10 new buses with bondAnother 10 new buses have been purchased for Romeo Community Schools through its latest bond.
The Board of Education voted 7-0 to buy nine 71-passenger buses at $88,040 each and one special education bus at $94,810. These will be 2016 models that are anticipated to arrive by the beginning of the 2014-15 school year.
The $887,170 purchase comes out of the $5.1 million bus bond approved by voters in November. The bond will pay for replacing all 54 of the district's fleet.
The first 12 buses purchased through the bond arrived in April.
