ELC OKs house sale
The Estherville Lincoln Central Community School District Board of Education in a public hearing Tuesday approved the sale of a house at 1509 S. Third Ave.
The board sold the house to Amy Streit for $2,000 with the condition that it be moved. The district has acquired properties in the area in anticipation of Phase II of the school construction project.
In other business during a special board meeting, the board approved the migrant contract with Nancy Brommer for $3,500. Brommer verifies students of migrant families living in the district which helps the district secure compensatory federal funding. The district currently gets $15,000 yearly, said Superintendent Dick Magnuson.
Magnuson also reported on school construction. He said work is currently being done on North Roosevelt for relocation of the district central offices.
Magnuson said there will be a walk-through Thursday of the new middle school prior to final cleanup and relocation. He also noted the possible need for another night custodian for the middle school and a part-time custodian for Roosevelt.
The superintendent also noted progress on the practice football fields with installation of the watering system next week. Furnishings and equipment will also be purchased for the music department, library, and lunch room. Magnuson said some tables and chairs will be used if serviceable.
