The Milton School District moves forward with special vote

Milton School District voters will still get to decide on the purchase of the city’s old bowling alley for use as an additional sports practice facility.  The board me Wednesday night to consider if a special electorate meeting planned for next Monday should still be held.  The concern appears to be over the preliminary assessment of the building being worth $100 thousand less than the district originally thought.  Superintendent Tim Schigur says the owners aren’t budging on the sales price of $485 thousand.  The board decided to move ahead with the vote anyway.  In accordance with state statutes, the decision rests in resident’s hands because it would mean the acquisition of new property for the district.
