Ottawa Finalizing Purchase Of Flooded School

Posted by wlpo on February 2, 2013

A property is never sold until the closing and the closing day is Monday for the old Ottawa Central School.

The city is buying the flood-damaged building and surrounding land for 375 thousand dollars.

The closing is scheduled for 11 Monday morning at Ottawa City Hall.  At that time the city will be buying just the school building and not the land.  City officials say the land would be bought during a separate sale.

The city plans to demolish the building that’s on the Illinois River flood plain.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
