School site goes on block again
NEEDLES — The Needles Unified School District Board of Trustees have put their Grace Henderson property (located at 651 North N St.) out to bid once again.
“I have received some interest from various groups who would like to purchase that property,” said Mary McNeil Ph.D., NUSD superintendent. “I would like the board to discuss and approve a minimum bid for this property and then I would create bid packets and hopefully we will be able to sell this property.”
“We tried asking for $1 million and $500,000 and we didn’t receive any bidders,” said Michael ‘Shane’ Breaux. “We can’t have minimum below the assessed value, which is right around $300,000.”
The NUSD Board of Trustees talked it over and they all agreed to place the Grace Henderson property for sale with a minimum bid of $400,000 during their meeting on Oct. 30.
