On Monday night, Feb. 16, the South Tama School Board voted to accept a bid from School Bus Sales for a new 84-passenger school bus. Three bids had been received: Hogland Bus - $111,968 Thomas Bus - $100,659 and School Bus Sales - $99,365. School Bus Sales bid was for Blue Bird 84-passenger complete. Steve McAdoo, STC transportation director, told board members he was pleased with the low bid being approved, particularly since it was for a Blue Bird, because all other buses are Blue Birds. This means many of the parts are interchangeable and they can stock parts more conveniently and economically.
