The Bethalto School Board approved a two-year bus lease for two buses for the district at the School Board Meeting last Monday. A Representative from Central States Busing and the Director of Buildings, Grounds, and Transportation for the district answered questions from the board regarding the lease.

Director of Building, Grounds, and Transportation for the Bethalto School District Bill Stratton says the reason the lease is for just two buses is because of an offset.

Stratton says the warranty will stay the same and even though the two year lease is more expensive than the five, this plan will put all of the buses onto the same timeline for the next lease, eliminating the chance of another offset.
