Middleburgh Schedules Bus Vote November 12th

Written By Editor on 10/21/13 | 10/21/13

Despite the bus proposition failing this spring, the Middleburgh Central School will be asking its voters to decide if they would like another bite at the apple. The school posted a story about this on their website. The proposition will be voted on in three weeks and will be asking whether or not to purchase three buses for a total of about $270,000.
Ten years is considered to be the useful life of a school bus in New York State, where the use of corrosive materials on snowy and icy roads accelerates rusting in vehicles. The district currently has two buses older than 10 years, three that are 9 years old, and four that are 8 years old. "The standards our buses need to meet to satisfy NYS DOT are some of the most stringent in the country. The cost to our district to meet these standards on our older buses increases at an accelerated rate as they age," Waldron said. "There comes a point where the District needs to consider whether we are putting more money into a bus than it is worth."
The vote will take part from noon to 9pm in the High School Gym Lobby.
