District 80 to sell Franklin building

Minimum bid of $35K sought


MT. VERNON -- — District 80 officials have decided to move forward with selling the Benjamin Franklin Early Childhood Center.

The now empty building is not being used by the district and the goal is to sell the structure by mid-December to avoid winterizing costs. A minimum bid amount has been set at $35,000.

The District 80 Board of Education approved moving ahead with the sale following a closed session at Wednesday night's meeting. School officials will advertise for bids in the local media soon.
