3.3. Approve Purchase Agreement for Coach Bus
Rationale:  I am asking the board of education to make a motion to approve the purchase of a 54 passenger 2003 MCI bus for activities. This bus is in good shape and has been garaged with regular maintenance.  Our mechanic and transportation director viewed and drove this bus several days ago and felt it was in good shape.  This would replace one of our oldest coach buses which is 28 years old and has about a million miles on it.  The agreed upon price is $125,000 for this coach.  This would be paid for from our General Fund and Depreciation Fund.  I did discuss this bus at our Activities Meeting on Monday and also shared the need to look for a coach bus with our Facilities and Finance Committee last month.
Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to Approve the purchase of a 54 passenger coach bus Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
