School board: Keep or sell the truck?

April 5, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — As passage of the 2011-12 Pennsylvania budget looms, the Punxsutawney Area School District is seeking to keep funds in check as it eyes a possible loss of almost $2 million, should Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget pass.

A period of discussion focused on a building and grounds vehicle, which has seemingly been replaced with a vehicle that has fewer than 2,000 miles on it after two years, board member Bob Pascuzzo said.

Phil Heitzenrater, maintenance supervisor, said he would like to keep a 1994 GMC, citing it as more of an asset instead of selling it.
