Brady school needs new bus

Grant would help with cost

Brady Public Schools could be getting a new bus. At their meeting Oct. 14, the school board approved an application for a Nebraska Clean Diesel Grant.

The grant would provide $24,630 toward a new bus

Superintendent Bill Porter said a new bus would cost around $80,000 and the school’s depreciation fund would provide $59,000.

However, if Brady is awarded the grant, the school district must scrap a bus entirely upon awarding. If not received, Porter said the district still needs to buy a bus.

On a related matter, the board approved Rochester Midland Corporation’s contract for a soft water system for the boiler and an outside loop cooling and heating unit.

The bid was for $3,788

Porter said cost includes chemicals and proper installation and maintenance.

In other business, the board transferred $1,500 from the general fund into the employee benefit fund.
