School Bus Advertising To Be Discussed

A proposal to place advertising on Putnam County school buses will be brought up when the board of education meets on Thursday. It was in March of this year that the board OK'd the general idea of accepting advertising on the buses -- within certain guidelines. But this week they will be voting a specific "transportation advertisement proposal." The board will also be discussing the feasibility of expanding Burks Middle School in Monterey. They held a public meeting about the idea last month after schools director Dr. Kathleen Airhart brought up the fact that Monterey's elementary school is overcrowded and in less than ideal condition.
