The Wasco Union Elementary School District will double its fleet of electric cars used by staff to 10.
Grant money will offset the cost of the $35,000 vehicles, leaving the district to pay $15,000.
Superintendent Kelly Richers informed the board the district received a grant from the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District for the EV vehicles. The grant will cover $100,000 of the total purchase price; the bid for the vehicles was $177,377.35 from Three Way Chevrolet.
“Each vehicle originally costs $35,475.47, and with the grant from the Pollution Control District, the vehicles will only cost the district $15,000.00 each” Richers said.
After a closed session, Richers reported that the district hired six new employees.
