Canajoharie school bus vote passes
Voters in the Canajoharie Central School District
approved the annual bus lease referendum March 24 with 69 voting yes
and 6 voting no.
This year’s referendum included a proposal to
lease two 66-passenger buses and one wheelchair bus, all for
five-year terms. The leases on the 66-passenger buses will be set at
an annual cost not to exceed $17,500 each. The wheelchair bus lease
will be set at an annual cost not to exceed $19,100.
The Friday vote continued the district’s plan to
lease rather than purchase buses. The leases would be paid for using
the district’s bus replacement fund—without any impact on the local
“Thank you to everyone who took the time to
vote,” said Superintendent Deborah Grimshaw.
