Dealing with conditions beyond their control
H-M-S faces increased bus cost, limited mower availability
July 21, 2022
Increased costs and limited availability are impacting some of the Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn Community School's purchases.
A bus ordered earlier this year will cost more than the original bid price. School Bus Sales Co. notified H-M-S that Blue Bird Body Company has implemented a supplemental invoice program which will increase the cost of buses already ordered.
The additional cost for H-M-S is $3,500. School Bus Sales stated they are "only passing down the exact amount of the supplemental invoice to our end customer as we are not trying to make profit on this unfortunate series of events."
