Agreed with the President's Advisory Council recommendation to: Purchase ten seven-passenger vans and trade in the College’s 15-passenger vans, at a net cost of approximately $110,000. Additionally, the College would lease an additional five vans, at a cost of approximately $20,000. It is also expected that the College would have to rent additional vans probably a little over 100 times during the year. At the end of the first five months, the use of the five leased vans will be evaluated for possible purchase if it is deemed that would be more cost effective than leasing. (This is in response to an Education Code requirement effective 1/1/05 stating that drivers of 15-passenger vans must have a Class B driver’s license.) (10/6/04)
