NA-FC moves to buy properties

Residents voice concerns

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

Fred McWhorter, chief business officer, said it’s possible school corporations can purchase those properties at those sales, but he’d review Indiana Code and the district’s policies to make sure.

Gardenour said more direct contact with local homeowners could help avoid any concerns from the neighborhoods they’re purchasing property from.

“I would like to see more communication with people who live in that neighborhood, I think we owe that to them to give them some input,” Gardenour said. “The people want to have participated, especially if it’s going to have an effect on their properties.”

But Mark Boone, board member, said the district has actively sought properties along near the high school, but it’s been no secret they’ve wanted to purchase more space for the school.

The board also gave Snyder permission to consider the purchase of 8780 Highway 64.
