Board approves action to allow sale of former Central Office
The Newton Community School District Board of Education unanimously approved an action to allow the sale of the Maytag house that was the former location of the district’s Central Office during Monday night’s regular meeting. Joe Klingensmith moved to approve the action item and Nat Clark seconded the motion.
There was no further discussion on the matter during the meeting, but Superintendent Steve McDermott said during a phone conversation this morning that there is local interest in the property. However, a listing price is not yet set.
“Right now the feeling of the board is that they intend to have the district sell it as owner rather than working with an individual real estate agent ... just out of fairness,” McDermott said. “It would be so difficult to select one over others, and so many realtors are very supportive of the school district.”
