Sale of former Maytag home could be final Monday
For the last several months, Newton’s Community School Board of Education has been trying to sell the former Maytag home/District Office and during Monday’s meeting, the process may finally be complete.
The board will hold the second and final public hearing on the matter at 6:30 p.m. in the Emerson Hough conference room. A vote will take place during a latter portion of the meeting, on whether or not to accept the $57,311 bid from Steve and Laura Jochems.
During the first public hearing on Aug. 5, outgoing board member Dennis Combs was the only ‘No’ vote on the agreement to accept the Jochems’ bid. Combs’ vote was based on the fact he wanted to add purchasing stipulations to the deal, which Superintendent Bob Callaghan warned against and other board members disagreed with.
