Central School sale referendum set for Nov. 26

Proposed purchaser would pay $165,000 for city building


Tonawanda News — The upkeep of the property is currently costing the board approximately $1,000 per month.  

The board began discussing the sale of the 34,720-square-foot building in October 2012, and listed the school at the beginning of January for $325,000. 

Last spring, the district sold another former school, Highland elementary, to S. Spoth, LLC in an auction for substantially less than its original listing price of $440,000. People Inc. planned to use the building for apartments, but the plans have yet to be approved and finalized, and the large school still sits vacant.
