SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont town selectman has offered to buy a pair of town-owned schools for $1 each, saying the buildings have been idle nearly three years after voters supported a measure to sell or get rid of them.
Select board member David Yesman of Springfield proposed Monday the district sell the Park Street and East schools to him.
The Eagle-Times reports Selectboard Chairman Kristi Morris said the board is ill-prepared to discuss the sale and should schedule a presentation to hear more about it.
Springfield voters opted to consolidate the school district in 2010. The Park Street building has served most recently as an administrative office. It has become an important financial topic among residents who do not want to keep dropping taxpayer money into the building.
