Fairbury School Board Seems To Be Moving In The Right Direction

 It’s been a long time coming. But it seems that the District 8 Board of Education may be making some very important strides when it comes to making local purchases.
 Last week some school board members along with support from some in administration, voiced that it is important to buys goods and services locally when ever possible. The issue was raised over an agenda item to solicit bids for a used van with out of town car agencies included in the mix.
 While the BOE fell short of mandating that when ever possible things need to be “bought at home,” a certain level of awareness was at least raised that this is an issue that needs addressing. For far too long too many goods and services that could have been purchased locally have been sent out of town over the caveat of “fiscal responsibility.”
