September 16, 2020
The Sidney City Council recently it can receive a new public transportation bus through the CARES Act.
"As part of the CARES Act, we're eligible to apply for a bus," said Sidney City Manager David Scott.
The bus, a 12-passenger, with a handi-cap lift, is valued at $75,000. The bus has to replace a unit from the City's fleet that is at least 10 years old and has $100,000 miles.
