WDC board approves purchase of 10 buses
Wadena Minnesota 314 S. Jefferson 56482

The District 2155 school board approved the purchase of 10 bus leases from the Hoglund Bus Company at their July meeting.

WDC business manager Jerry Anderson said that Federal Emergency Management Action (FEMA) funding will be picking up $643,000 of the $730,563.25 purchase amount.

The district leased the new buses last summer after the June 17 tornado destroyed more than half of their fleet. Eight of the new buses are full size while two are 14-passenger vehicles.
