Meeting regarding new bus fees – May 16

Tuesday, 07. May 2013 by Doreen McDonell
“We’re going to have a public information session. We’ve asked the public for feedback and input and other ideas, alternatives on how can we best provide transportation in a fiscally responsible manner. We’ve asked for written submissions to be sent to the
board through schools to the secretary treasurer by May 8th, and the response has not been tremendous,” Sloan says. “Part of the concern of the board is that there be accurate information out there and so the meeting would be an effort for us to get that
information out there, and allow the public to ask questions of us to clarify the issue.”
The exact time of the session on May 16 has yet to be established, however the school board will settle on a firm time by the end of Thursday.
