West Burlington is moving ahead with plans to demolish a former school.
The West Burlington School District has agreed to sell its former middle school to the city for just $1.
Superintendent Dave Schmitt says this is the best option for the entire community.
“We could have gotten $5,000-$10,000 for the building,” says Schmitt, “but then there could have been that risk that it become dilapidated or an eyesore for our community.”
The city plans to tear down the former school at 211 Ramsey Street so several new homes can be built, one of which would be targeted to low-income families.
