Former Neshkoro school building to be auctioned
With the lease to a five-county consortium that provided human services programs at the former Neshkoro School expiring, the building is now being listed on the Wisconsin Surplus Online Auction website.
Several community members attended the regular August meeting of the Westfield School board to share stories on how the building has been utilized by the community in the past two years. This includes activities such as quilt shows and training for Special Olympics.
Prior to the meeting, an offer to purchase for $5,000 was received by Frank Buress. Upon acceptance of the offer, Buress would have then began the process to create a non-profit organization to be associated with the building. No action was taken on the offer at the regular board meeting, but the district did call a special meeting that was held five days later to discuss the property.
At the special meeting the board voted to place the former school on the Wisconsin Surplus Online Auction site to give ample public notice that the building was for sale. Anyone who is interested in purchasing the school can bid on it. The building will be listed until November 1st.
