Gifford considering whether to buy, lease buses

GIFFORD — The Gifford school board has some hard choices ahead in terms of transportation.

To lease or buy buses: That is the question.

Tim Toolen of Midwest Bus Sales gave a presentation to the school board at its monthly meeting this week about the firm's bus lease or bus lease-purchase programs.

Gifford Superintendent Rod Grimsley said the district is at the end of its current bus lease and must look at options for the next school year.

The board will hear a presentation from Midwest Transit in February.
