City Schools of Decatur will buy Scottdale property to store buses
City Schools of Decatur has gone outside the city to find space to store its school buses.
Following the Jan. 23 School Board meeting, the board voted to buy a 1.45 acre property at 540 Kentucky Street in Scottdale, just off of North Decatur Road. The purchase price is $1.4 million.
The buses are currently parked at the site for the future Talley Street elementary school.
The Scottdale property includes a small office building, warehouse space and – most importantly – parking area to store the buses.
“The property we are purchasing is for use as a facility for our transportation department, allowing us to free-up space at the Talley Street school site where we were previously going to have to park buses,” Superintendent David Dude wrote in a blog post recapping the Jan. 23 meeting.
