$34,000 is that even going to cover the costs associated with keeping this building? When is the board going to make the decision and get rid of this building? The taxpayers can NOT afford to keep two building we don't need. We can't afford a three mill tax increase. Do you get the message?

You can afford it and you'll pay it, Whiner Boy.
You got a nice new school and you're too busy whining to appreciate it. Plus, they got sucker tenants for both the batcave shitholes. You don't deserve such good fortune.

Read the story if you can, Confucius, or get somebody smarter to read it to you. The answers to both questions are in there. Jesus, I got nothing but retarded neighbors.

Can this district afford to lease this building for three years? Thirty four thousand dollars doesn't sound like much. How much is it going to cost the district to maintain this building for three more years?(the costs when the sewer comes, that alone is going to far exceed th $34k a year)

You have now exploited yourself as being a lot better than the other folks who hae been ELCO lifers. Not as fortunate as you seem to be. Jesus doesn't have retarded neighbors. What an insult. Who do you think makes up a community of people with all good intentions for the future? Apparently not you!

Let the IU go to Annville. It isn't worth 34,000. Sell the building and move on and don't get wrapped up in a three year lease. Is this board looking out for the taxpayers or themselves?

Have you noticed how long some of the properties have been on the market?
Why?

Who is going to be quick to buy anything in Schaefferstown knowing that they will have to pay, God knows how much, to hook up to sewer?
The school is no different.

There are no interested parties willing to pay squat for a poorly maintained building and septic system. It has no air-conditioning and a unpredictable heating system, MOLD?
The previous school board presented all of the above as reasons for a new building.

How would you or the board know if anyone is interested or not? They haven't taken the time to find out. The very reasons you stated are the very reasons to sell the building the cost associated with connecting to the sewer,replacing the roof and heating system etc.. Now is the time to sell or at least try.

I'm speaking from my point of view. There's no way I'd pay 1.2 for that building. They might as well give it away, and even then I'd have to think about taking it. I doubt they'd get 34,000. for it on a good day. Not before it's hooked up to sewer.
Buy it and tear it down? How much do you think that would cost?
Do you have any idea? Try half a million, if not more.

Just sell it? Ask a homeowner in Schaefferstown why the For Sale sign has been in their front yard for close to or over a year?
Listen to what they tell you.

What makes you think the school could be sold any faster or for a fair price.

You just don't get it, do you?

You don't get... the taxpayers can NOT afford this building. Put it on the market and see what happens. You don't know to you try.
