Scottville resident complains about school buses

September 10, 2013

SCOTTVILLE – Beryl Street resident Butch Claveau is worried about the speed of vehicles on his street, especially school buses. Claveau expressed his concerns Monday night to the Scottville City Commission, during it’s regular meeting.

Claveau said he has called the school over the years, complaining about the speed of the buses, but he has not been satisfied with the results.

“I’ve been in that house for 65 years and one of these times somebody is going to get killed out there,” he said.

Claveau suggested the city place a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Gay and Beryl streets, the intersection where his house is.

Buses from Mason County Central schools use Beryl Street as a route between Scottville Elementary and the middle school.

Superintendent Jeff Mount said he had never heard of any complaints about the buses.

“This is the first time I’ve heard of a complaint about buses speeding in the city limits from Mr. Claveau or from anyone,” Mount said. “If there is a complaint about our buses, or anything at the school, we certainly will look into it. But, again, I don’t know who he has spoken with because this is the first I’ve heard of it.”

Scottville Police Sgt. Jason Williams, who was in attendance, said he will look into the traffic issue and will talk to officials at MCC.
