Maumee school board votes to keep high school busing


The Maumee Board of Education voted 3-2 at a meeting Monday night not to eliminate high school busing starting next month.

Board members recently had discussed making the cut as a result of a failed 5.9-mill levy. Voters on Nov. 4 rejected the request for an operating levy that would have generated $2.9 million per year.
