District will hear public on sale of school


Local citizens will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed sale of Center Elementary School and its surrounding property at a meeting before the school board, Monday, March 23, beginning at 5:30, at the secondary library in the new education complex.

The district acquired the building and some 8.5 acres of land for $155,000 from the Continental Land Company earlier this year and proposes to sell the property after the school board declared it surplus at its meeting Feb. 2.

Citizens can comment on the sale or why the district should retain the property.

The input meeting will be part of the regular monthly school board meeting.

Superintendent Dennis Carlson stated that those wishing to comment on the intended sale can do so at the meeting or send comments to the school district.

After the comment session, and if the school board orders Carlson to proceed with the sale, the district will then order an appraisal of the property.

The district cannot sell the property for less than 90 percent of the appraised value.
