A child-care educational facility has expressed an interest in possibly purchasing St. Joseph’s former Kennedy Elementary School and an adjacent parcel of land.
The facility has expressed interest in submitting a bid to buy the facility. No details have been finalized yet and so the name of the facility cannot be made public, according to St. Joseph Mayor Rick Schultz.
The possible land purchase, Schultz noted, would include a kind of zig-zag configuration from just east of the government center to Second Avenue.
At one time there were two interested parties considering submitting bids on the Kennedy property, Schultz noted in an Oct. 10 interview with the Newsleader, but the facility currently showing interest is the only one who did submit a bid.
Details, Shultz said, will be released when and if a purchase/sale agreement is reached.
