Miss the Bus?

Did you know Wilkes-Barre owns a school bus? No really. A school bus. The rumor is that it was bought, in 2006, to ferry the summer hires around.

Is that supposed to be a hood ornament or camouflage?

It was bought from DeNaples.

We paid $9,000 for it.

There is NO TITLE. Therefore it can NOT be legally registered and has never left the city's DPW lot.

After YEARS of the windows being left open, you know the interior is shot.

Since it can not be used, why didn't we get our city's money back? Why are we getting stuck with the pieces of crap anyway? Does WHO we are buying them from hold the answer?

Not trying to hide anything here, Are you?

And this is NOT the only piece of crap that we have bought from DeNaples. Lets not forget the animal control van (bought from, guess who?), No title, and returned after Tyler Hammond questioned the purchase. There are several of these questionable purchases that are being investigated, by citizens, using Right-To-Know requests. It is going slow because we aren't professionals, but we are getting there.

Add on: I had left this info with a reporter and was going to leave it with them for now. Until a friend from city hall told me that (after taking the pictures) the fourth floor had been informed of my interest.

  1. There is thousands in junk that the city has bought. If they would just stop spending on pointless desires, they could hire more police/firefighters, give everyone a raise, and promote and fix up the city. But I think the current administration would rather not....
