The North Judson-San Pierre School Board considered the purchase of some new corporation vehicles when they met Tuesday evening.

Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin reminded members that they utilize the Central Indiana Educational Service Center to assist with the bidding process. She said three companies submitted bids but one company didn’t include trade in values.

She then provided a recommendation to the board, “We are trading one yellow bus for a new yellow bus and two MPV for two new MPVs, and MPVs are multi-purpose vehicles.”

Dr. Zupin continued, “We recommended that you approve purchase one 72 passenger bus and two MPVs from Midwest Transit.”

The quote from Midwest Transit totaled $189,847. Members unanimously approved the purchases as recommended.
