In other business, the FCBOE approved the mutual termination of the property lease with the Red Bay Rescue Squad. This building will now be used for bus maintenance and landscaping.

“There are multiple things on a bus which could be fixed quickly if we didn’t have to tow it across the county,” said Franklin County Superintendent Greg Hamilton. “I think it’ll be nice to have that on that side of the county.”
