The board first considered selling these properties at the request of RCS Superintendent Dr. George Norris after the county cleared the schools to sell the properties by declining to take ownership.
In the past several years, the Hoffman School
has also been closed and sold for $1 to the town, and the Early Childhood Development Center has reverted to state ownership and Rohanen Primary is no longer being used as a school.
"We hope to use the money we make to offset some non-recurring capital improvement projects we'd like to complete, and this will help us to not have to dip into our capital outlay budget to fund them," Norris
explained before presenting his
recommendation to the board.
