Voters approve bus lease proposition on Tuesday, March 13

Qualified voters of the Canajoharie Central School District went to the polls on Tuesday, March 13 from noon to 9 p.m. at Canajoharie High School and passed a school bus proposition. The proposition passed 104-6 on Tuesday. The proposition will allow the district to lease three 66-passenger school buses for five years.

The bus lease will not have an impact on the local tax levy, as it will be paid for out of the district’s Bus Replacement Reserve Fund. The cost of the lease is $17,500 for each bus, for an annual total cost of $52,500.

“The district’s multi-year leasing plan keeps our bus fleet up to date and helps ensure the safety of our students,” Superintendent Deborah Grimshaw said.
