Vote means no new buses for Bokoshe schools

October 9, 2013

Bokoshe Schools will "limp through" the rest of the year with aging buses after voters turned down a bond proposal to buy three vehicles Tuesday, Superintendent Dennis Shoup said.
The proposed $260,000 bond issue would have been used replace the district's three route buses.
The vote was 37-32 against the proposal.
The bonds would have replaced one that is soon to be retired.
"Perhaps we can work a little harder next year" if another bond issue is proposed, Shoup said.
He said all three buses date from the 1990s and have high mileage.
