Sign that electric buses on the way
A Seneca City Hall meeting served as a sign this morning that, after all the talk, electric-powered buses are on the way. In fact, Ed Halbig says, one of the four buses ordered by Seneca is nearly finished. Today’s meeting was mandatory, pre-bid meeting for companies interested in providing the road and sidewalk infrastructure necessary for two electric charge stations. One station is to be on the grounds of Oconee Medical Center and the other at the bottom of Norton-Thompson Park downtown. There’s also work to be done at the Seneca Industrial Park, the former Pro Pex plant, where the buses are to be housed. Bids for the work are to be opened July 11.
