Voters in the West Bend School District will be asked for approval to sell the Barton Elementary School property during a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday in the board room of the district’s Education Service Center, 735 S. Main St.
“The district has been negotiating with Commonwealth Development Corp. for the sale, but approval by the electors is needed before anything can be finalized,” Ted Neitzke, district superintendent said Thursday afternoon.
The sole purpose of the special meeting Monday night, Neitzke said, is to ask voters for the authorization to sell the 90-year-old school at 614 School Place, which was closed in June 2014 as part of the school district’s long-range facilities plan.
Unfortunately, I have a prior commitment that evening, but someone stuff a “yes” vote into the box for me, will ya?
