After one unsuccessful attempt, the Findlay City School district is on its way to buying property for its new bus garage. At Monday’s meeting, the school board approved buying the former Northwest Ohio RV location at 1710 Romick Parkway in Findlay for $600,000.
Superintendent Ed Kurt said the district will also be buying the lot next door for bus parking. Kurt said because they are not expecting to add on to any of the facilities there will be cost savings with this property, although the exact dollar amount is not yet known.

Kurt said the Romick Parkway location is centrally located within the school district, out of the flood zone, closer to fueling stations and will help the district take better care of its transportation fleet.
The district will be able to purchase the property with grant money given to them by Marathon Petroleum last February.
