NLS, Russell's reach tentative agreement on bus contract


NEW LONDON -- The New London-Spicer School District and Russell's Bus Service reached a tentative agreement Monday regarding the district's transportation contract for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years.

Superintendent Paul Carlson said the deal was during a phone conference between the two parties.

With the tentative agreement, he said, Russell's indicated it would cut its previous contract offer by the $37,774 that separated it from the district's lowest contract offer.
