During a regular bus inspection, six of the 29 Wetzel County school buses failed to meet inspection qualifications. Tagged with red rejection stickers, these buses will be out of service for the next several days. Superintendent Bill Jones stressed this was a routine inspection and the county will be calling the mechanics as soon as possible to get the infractions corrected. The West Virginia state inspector plans to return Monday and reinspect the six rejected buses. In addition to the 29 operating buses, the county has six spare buses. Wetzel County school buses will run their routes with no trouble or outside assistance.
