The Akron Central School Board will put two propositions on the ballot Dec. 19 for replacing its aging bus fleet.
If approved by voters, the first proposition would allow the district to buy two 66-passenger buses and two 28-passenger vans at a maximum cost of $248,000. The second proposition is to buy one midsize truck for no more than $30,000.
The new buses would replace older models and meet greater transportation demands. A regular bus replacement program reduces costs in the long run and also provides for safer buses, officials said.
The board appointed Janice Rosenberg as chairwoman for the special district referendum vote and Susan Brewer as clerk.
"Safety is our first consideration," said Superintendent Ronald G. DeCarli.
