Hold on here for just minute.
In thinking about this rationally, many of the school buses have a driver deployable snow/ice chain device. Toggle switch operated at the driver's finger tips.
According to this article of which I am unsure of the publication date, these are 2k per vehicle. That sounds a bit light for my knowledge of heavy truck optional equipment but anyway.
We the tax payers of the county have paid and are paying thousands per bus for this option so they can operate in unfavorable road conditions.
a) Did this bus have that option?
b) If so why was this device not in use?
c) If we are not going to train the driver when and how to use them and instead close school every time we get the slightest bit of cold, possible freezing rain or snow then who in county school board equipment procurement is responsible for rationalizing said purchases and has been buying this "optional equipment"?
d)Since we are obviously unwilling to train drivers how and when to use the device how much money have we and are we wasting on this "optional equipment"?
Ponder that one folks and yes as responsible citizens and taxpayers you should be asking the your county school board what the hell and why we are spending $$$$ needlessly on equipment we are seemingly unwilling or untrained?
Are we just spending it so we can get more next year?
See ya'll at the next school board meeting!
That sounds like BS to me.
