Shelley trustees approved the purchase of an International 77-passenger conventional school bus for $81,144.
School districts have 60 days to âpiggy-backâ on another school districtâs bus bid, said transportation supervisor Ron Searle.

BLACKFOOT â They wear the same uniform, receive the same training and are as qualified as any Bingham County deputy sheriffâonly they are volunteers.

The program was originally started as a way to help fill vacancies within the department with qualified deputies. The reserve deputies also provide support to full-time deputies by covering high school sporting events, providing extra patrols during the Eastern Idaho State Fair and whenever additional deputies are needed.
