Put the bus barn back

Why are we going to spend extra BIG MONEY to build the bus barn in a bad location. There is no way the noise will not be a problem to residents. Just try to sleep in at 6 or 7 a.m. when buses are to be pretriped and warmed up. The area is not big enough to miss backing up buses and the days there are 20 plus cars on hand.

The DOT survey shows excessive traffic without extra buses to come and go at same time as college and parents. Note city police reports of all the hit and crash problems there. The DOT promotes school needs to make its own excess west to east at a cost of more than the building of the bus barn. The extra dirt work to even come close enough area will also cost way more than stated. The people pushing this want to spend BIG BIG for a super stadium for soccer and sorts. We just spent the cost of the bus barn insurance money to upgrade the track with tile and fence way beyond insurance allowance. We cannot spend money we do not have. Put bus barn back.

The two safe room gyms/etc will not have gov/money promised to do to gov. cutbacks. Other schools have waited the past two years and never got it all. We need to speak up, fore we will have uncompleted projects. Facts are facts, lets be truthful. We can't spend money we dont have nor will the check be in the mail.
