Richland School Board Meeting Bus Safety Discussion

The Richland School Board will meet at the Richland Middle School Monday evening, November 7th, at 7:30. Expected to be at the meeting are representatives of bus manufacturer Blue Bird and Rousch Clean Tech – the maker of propane bus engines.

Both will be on hand to speak during the public comment portion of the meeting about propane buses. The Richland District's transportation contract is with Kobussen Buses – which were made by Blue Bird and Rousch. The representatives will speak on the safety and benefits of propane buses. Of course one of the Kobussen buses started fire last month. It's unsure if the results of that incident's investigation is complete and will be discussed during the meeting. The school board meeting will begin at 7:30 PM at the Richland Middle School.
