It was business as usual at the October meeting of the Dodge County Board of Education.
The school board approved the purchase of two new school buses from Blue Bird Corporation. The bid amount for the new buses totaled $159,442.00. The total cost of the buses includes air conditioning and cameras. Bus bonds from the State of Georgia in the amount of $154,440.00 will almost cover the cost of the new buses. The remaining balance of $28,810.00 will be paid from the special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) funds.
