MASON CITY – The sale of an aging elementary school in Mason City may be a foregone conclusion now, as the Mason City school board meets in special session Monday to discuss its future.

The board will meet Monday evening at 6:00 PM at the administration building to vote on a proposed request authorizing school district staff to prepare a bid packet for the potential sale of the property.

The district recently held an open forum at Madison School for residents to offer ideas for the future of the property and structures there. The district had apparently already done quite a bit of research on the possibility of selling the property, which is dear to many area residents who enjoy the playgrounds and the general peace and quiet it offers. Some residents fear that a sale would lead to the gutting and abandonment of the school, then its eventual demolition and finally the construction of low-cost multi-family housing units.

The district is on the hook for a $35,000 yearly price tag to maintain the school building and grounds, along with disintegrating and aging equipment inside the building.
