A vote Monday morning will decide if the Essex County, N.Y., bus system will remain on the road.
Officials say the aging buses need to be replaced or the system will eventually be shut down.
The Plattsburgh Press-Republican reports $1.5 million in grant money has been secured for five new buses, but the county will have to match that with $100,000.
The bus system normally costs the county $6,000 a year. Board members say the system sees a couple thousand riders every month.
Some fear the costs could be too much. Others suggested increased bus advertising as a way to supplement the program.
