School Board rejects buying more land for Irving College
Placeholder Image
Irving College School will not get the additional 10 acres its supporters wanted as the School Board rejected spending the $150,000 asking price Thursday night.“I understand,” said a disappointed Tanya Bess who was the lone member of the School Board to vote yes on the measure to purchase the surrounding property. “Hopefully we can revisit this at some point.”Bess pushed for the extra property to go with the $3 million-plus school upgrade and expansion which is about to begin at the rural southern Warren County campus. She said by buying the land it would allow the school to put in a second entrance to the campus, allow the playground to be closer to the school, allow for better parking, and alleviate concerns about having enough space for the sanitary sewer should the system fail.
