School Bus


A plan to install security cameras on local school buses appears to be in jeopardy, after the Greenville City Council Tuesday voted against an agreement designed  to help alleviate any associated legal costs.

The council was scheduled to enter into a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the Greenville Independent School District, which would come into play in the event drivers ticketed under a city ordinance decided to sue.

But Council member James Evans objected to the entire proposal, voicing constitutional amendment issues among other concerns.

Motorists in Commerce likely noticed more traffic than usual Friday morning as Commerce and University police personnel were directing traffic around an accident at the intersection of Culver and Monroe St.

The Greenville City Council intends to discuss whether to support the installation of cameras on local school buses.
