Copier deal saves BOE money

By Patricia Ann Speelman -

FORT LORAMIE — Members of the Fort Loramie Local Schools Board of Education approved a new lease for copiers that will save the district more than $12,300 per year.

The action came during the board’s regular meeting, Sept. 20. The lease is with Perry ProTech.
