The School District is feeling what might be the most solid bite of inflation in its history.
The school board accepted bids for diesel, milk and bakery goods way above the previous high, and are faced with gas price increases of 47%.
Business Manager Ron Serfas said he's never seen bids jump so high during his eight-year career.
The board accepted bids for 8.5 cents per half pint of milk (an increase of about $2,400), 32 cents per 1.5-pound loaf of bread (an increase of about $900), and 18.5 cents per gallon of diesel fuel (an increase of about $1,000).
On the bright side...
