q  Review and Make Changes to this Agenda.




New Business

OLD Business

q  Goal for 2010 – Facilities Audit - Judy, Scott, and John to get together to discuss what it is we want out of the Facilities Audit and what activities need to be addressed to get there.

q  Goal for 2010 – Implement State Transportation Software

Latest word is the software is available for piloting.  We did not volunteer.  I am hoping it will be available for staff to set it up over Xmas vacation.  But it may be Feb.


q  Update bus parking RDHS – Last time it was suggested  we go slower and review our options more closely rather than push to move right now.  Need to re-consider Traffic Patterns, Snow Removal, Radios vs Phones and obtain any permits needed and analyze costs. We are exploring other bus yard options.  Assuming we do not have the cash to take care of this during 09-10 at this point.


q  Update status of two new buses. Buses have been delivered.  Financing will be going to Finance Cmt on the 8th, and the Board on the 5th.


q  Update replacement of bus involved in accident last April along with the radio replacement.

q  Update on Underground Fuel Tanks, Water main valve, Sprinkler, and The Food Service Truck. - We are working on RDHS oil tanks.  Water main went OK at MacDougal. Sprinkler being reconnected. And I think we found a FS vehicle used.






















q  Next meeting:  Tuesday Nov 10th



Topic TBD – Could be start talks about construction possibilities.

Problems, or Praise
