DIXON – The school board will decide Wednesday whether it wants to sell a portion of Jefferson Elementary School property.
After the strategic planning committee took a tour of Jefferson, board members Jim Schielein, John Jacobs and Tom LeMoine met with Kevin Schultz, the district’s buildings and grounds supervisor, and Superintendent Michael Juenger to discuss the 40-foot plot.
Comparing it to similar lots, it’s worth about $8,000, according to district reports. A buyer is willing to pay that, and Juenger is recommending the board accept the offer, he said, because selling the plot would not hinder any future plans for the site.
Also Wednesday, the board will be given a budget presentation for 2013-14, learn results from this year’s school registration and vote on a health insurance plan for noncertified new employees.
The board is required to place a budget on file for public review for 30 days and hold a public hearing in September before it passes it. A hearing date will be set Wednesday.
The Dixon School Board meets at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Reagan Middle School, 620 Division St., in the cafeteria. A buildings tour to view summer repairs and renovations will start at 5 p.m. at Reagan.
