South bus route is a possibility

There is a possibility of six families using the route if it happens. One of the families said if their children had to get on to early they would continue to haul their children. If a bus route is established to the south and their children were assigned to that route they would no longer get paid mileage from the assigned pickup point to town. A committee of Mr Shipley, Chris Veal and Myron Lemer will be doing some research to iron out the details and bring it back to the board. Currently parents get paid 51¢ a mile mileage the first 5 miles from the home is not included on the mileage.
