Baldwin City having trouble selling property

teacher school education

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) — The Baldwin City school district has a deal for you.

The district has been trying to sell a three-story office building and a gymnasium near downtown Baldwin City for more than two years. It’s asking $415,000 but will accept a reasonable offer.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/13Lt4OM ) that the district hasn’t had any offers for the property, which includes a parking lot and adjacent lot.

District superintendent Paul Dorathy says the problem is that the buildings were built in the 1920s and ’30s and would need a lot of renovation.

The district has sold two closed schools in recent months.

Baldwin City has so much extra property because a $22.9 million bond issue passed in 2008 allowed it to build an elementary school, baseball fields and a performing arts center.
