School board votes against privatizing bus system

Board members for the Johannesburg-Lewiston school district voted unanimously not to privatize its bussing system.

Board members for the Johannesburg-Lewiston school district voted unanimously not to privatize its bussing system.

The vote for the proposal, which would have cut 10 bus drivers, happened at a meeting Monday evening.

Instead, school leaders accepted a counter-offer from the drivers that would give them a two percent pay cut and eliminate vision, dental and life insurance.

School officials say the new agreement could save the district about $25,000, a quarter of the deficit the school district is currently facing.
