The school board approved a motion to purchase the Williams property, 410 W. Pinckley Street, for $225,000.
The facility will be used to house the CCS transportation office, which is used for dispatch communication and bus routing.
Throughout the course of the decision making process, school board members have requested several appraisals for different property options, but finally chose the Williams property.
During the meeting, board member Amy Burke Adams made the motion, with board member Jennifer Kaelber giving the second.
"I believe this facility can provide the accommodations and space necessary to house the future transportation office, and I strongly support this decision," Adams said. "None of the other properties we looked at suited our needs as well as the Williams property."
The motion carried with a 6-1 vote, with board member Forrest Buell in opposition.
"I don't think this building was professionally chosen," Buell told The Brazil Times. "I didn't like the way they went about it. We should have advertised and published our specific needs to see if anyone around the community could offer a better property that was more customized to our needs for acreage, location, traffic congestion, etc."
Initially, the bus garage debate began when the City of Brazil's planning and zoning office gave the school corporation permission for a two-year contract for the temporary office structure on Depot and State streets; however, the city required a permanent structure to be put in place as soon as possible.
Since then, transportation officials have been operating out of the temporary office and exceeded the allotted time.
Brazil Planning Administrator Stacy Gibbens was able to grant the corporation an extension to allow the board more time to research their options.
Another issue with the current transportation office conditions included the building's size.
CCS Transportation Director Frank Misner and other office employees said the office was too small and didn't have enough room to accommodate those who may visit the site.
The purchased site includes an existing 6,000 square foot metal building, built in 2000 on 2.62 acres of land.
It's also equipped with two 14-foot garage doors and docks, as well as restrooms and offices.
At a previous board meeting, CCS Superintendent Kimberly Tucker said the purchase of the property would include $300,000 in improvements for installing perimeter fencing, above-ground fuel bays, engine exhaust removal system, site lighting and security and an additional $6,000 cost for appraisals.
