For a second time, the Tamaqua mayor has requested that school bus routes avoid a busy, residential section of town. But the school board says let's talk about it.
At Tuesday's regular meeting of the Tamaqua Area Board of Education, the directors read a request from Mayor Christian Morrison asking that buses avoid using streets of the North and Middle wards. In other words, buses shouldn't use that section of town as regular, routine travel routes.
In particular, Morrison indicated that Washington Street is one area that needs to be avoided.
