Bob Tomberlin hopes that will avert the possibility of a diesel fuel shortage.
Tomberlin painted a cautious picture at the monthly enterprise city school board meeting.
Enterprise City spent more than $10,000 on diesel over the summer to run its buses. That’s nearly double the expense from one year-ago.
Tomberlin says the district is looking to fill its 6,000 gallon storage tanks whenever possible.
He estimates that enterprise city has at least five or six weeks worth of fuel.
Tomberlin says he believes Enterprise is in a lot better shape in its fuel supply than several other school districts in the Wiregrass.
