County to Rescind The Purchase of 4 Transit Buses After Issues Found


Cortland County looks to rescind its original resolution of approving the purchase of 4 transit buses from Oneida County after issues with the buses were found.

The County was originally going to spend $5,700 dollars on two 2017 Ford E450 Cutaway Transit Buses and 2015 Ford E450 Cutaway Transit Buses. All buses were under 100,000 miles and were still within New York States useful life span guidelines.

However, upon an inspection of the 4 buses by the County Highway Department, it was found the buses had several major mechanical problems and the purchase did not warrant the overall cost of repairing the buses to standards.

The AG/Planning and Environmental Committee meeting voted to rescind the original purchase resolution during their meeting yesterday.
