ROCK ISLAND -- The Rock Island/Milan School Board will consider a new offer for the site of the former Audubon Elementary School when it meets Tuesday.|
No details on the offer were available Friday but the agenda for the school board meeting states that "an executed purchase agreement may be presented" for action.
Holly Sparkman, the school district's spokeswoman, said two offers could be considered by the board. She said details should be made public at the board meeting.
The board likely will meet behind closed doors to discuss the offers and could then vote in open session on a purchase agreement.
A deal to sell the site of the former school at 2601 18th Ave. to a Chicago developer for $700,000 fell through last month. The developer is understood to have withdrawn from the agreement when a prospective tenant lost interest in moving to the site.
The school district spent $280,000 to demolish the former Audubon Elementary School last year. In 2012, Fareway Stores pulled out of an agreement to buy and demolish the school for $475,000 after public protests against the plan.
