Brock board approves vehicle purchase

The Brock School Board recently approved the purchase of a new four-door sedan for the district for teachers, coaches and administrators to use while traveling to professional development training, extracurricular activities or other various school-related travel events.

"We have two vans, but those are frequently being used, so we are wanting to add a vehicle to our fleet," said Brock superintendent Scott Drillette. "We wanted to add a car because we find that a significant portion of our employee school-related travel is for only one or two people, so we didn’t think another van or suburban was necessary at this time.

He said right now, they have quotes for a Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Chevrolet Malibu.

“We will make a decision soon which make and model we will ultimately buy," he added.

Drillette said the school board approved $27,000 for the vehicle purchase. So far, the following quotes have been given to the district:

▪ 2016 Toyota Camry XLE (well-equipped model), $27,525.

▪ 2016 Toyota Camry XLE (standard equipment), $25,023.

▪ 2015 Hyundai Sonata (well-equipped), $26,841.

▪ 2016 Chevy Malibu LTZ, $24,326.

Drillette said no timetable has been established for the purchase, but it will be as soon as possible.

"As soon as my director of transportation and I find time to pick which car we want to purchase, we will buy it for the district," he said.
