Schools that pick-up children by bus in Randall will be getting a letter asking bus drivers to avoid making three-point turns rather than using cul de sacs.

The issue arose because of complaints about a Randall School bus doing a turnaround at 377th Avenue and 89th Place instead of driving down to a cul de sac to exit the neighborhood, as the streets were designed.

Supervisor Ken Mangold explained the county required the cul de sacs designed specifically to accommodate emergency vehicles and school buses.

Town Chairman Robert Stoll said a couple of attempts to talk to Randall district administrator Steve Bloom were unsuccessful.

“I believe that bus driver needs to drive down and use that cul de sac,” said Supervisor Rose Nolan, whose son, Randy Nolan, is a member of the School Board..

The board decided to write a letter to Bloom and the school board at first, but then expanded the initiative to include a letter clarifying the town’s position to any school district that buses children in the town.
