District administration says contracting out busing would save money up front, but cost more in long run
The Battle Creek Board of Education voted Monday to keep its bus services in-house and told its superintendent it was time to make a decision about the future of Clear Lake Camp. In a packed meeting at the Miller Stone Building, the board voted 6-0, with board Treasurer Art McClenney absent, to approve a new contract with its bus drivers union instead of an outside vendor.
