Shelley board approves purchase of new bus

March 17, 2011

SHELLEY – Buses and bus safety were the main topics of discussion at the Shelley Joint School District school board meeting Thursday evening.
Shelley trustees approved the purchase of an International 77-passenger conventional school bus for $81,144.
School districts have 60 days to “piggy-back” on another school district’s bus bid, said transportation supervisor Ron Searle.
“I like to order the same bus as Bonneville because they order more buses than we do,” Searle said. “The bus is already built and will be delivered about mid-July.”
