With major funding cuts looming, Community Enterprises of St. Clair County has made a very timely purchase of four retired buses from Blue Water Area Transit for one dollar each. All four buses run on compressed natural gas, which is a low-emission American-made alternative fuel that costs less and burns cleaner than either gasoline or diesel fuel. Made by Goshen Coach in Elkhart, Indiana, the buses can transport up to 15 passengers, or fewer when two wheelchairs are included. All four buses have wheelchair lifts, climate control, and upgraded air suspension in order to provide a more comfortable ride. Meanwhile, St. Clair County Community Mental Health is trimming agency payments in order to correct a $4.4 million budget deficit. CE provides CMH clients with job assistance.
