Richmond County BOE postpones designating bus stops

August 1, 2006

The Richmond County School Board is trying to avoid getting in the middle of a lawsuit.

BOE member A.K. Hasan says the leaders will not designate school bus stops tonight like they had planned.

Boards across the state can designate their bus stops so deputies can enforce a new law limiting how close sex offenders can live to them.

A federal judge filed a restraining order preventing Columbia County from enforcing the law after deputies started putting offenders on alert.
