School district sells two properties

Two schools in School District #83 have been sold.

Mount Ida and Ashton Creek Elementary have both been sold to private owners.

“The board determined they were surplus to the needs of the school district,” said district secretary treasurer Sterling Olson.

Mount Ida sold for $175,000 and Ashton Creek sold for $210,000.

“The money will help to fund other capital improvements,” said Olson.

Olson noted that the funds earned from selling the properties will go towards the new school board office and upgrades to Carlin Elementary and Len Wood Middle School.

Funds will also be going towards upgrades to the public works complex.
