Chester: Municipality Preparing To Take Over Elementary School

The warden for the Municipality of Chester says they've asked for a full assessment of Gold River-Western Shore Elementary School. The school is is expected to revert back to the municipality July 19 after it closes early next week. Allen Webber says there are concerns with the roof, they've asked for the maintenance records for the last number of years and council members plan on doing a walk-through of the facility. He says they are are other issues that also need to be discussed.

Webber says the municipality didn't budget for the school takeover, but doesn't expect a significant dollar figure to alter their budget. He says its too early to discuss future plans for the property. Webber says they will also have the building appraised to prepare it for re-sale.
