Meigs Local approves sale of land

Staff Report -

ROCKSPRINGS — The Meigs Local Board of Education approved the sale of property and other agenda items during last week’s regular meeting.

The board approved a resolution authorizing the private sale of real property owned by the board.

Treasurer Roy Johnson told the Sentinel that the property is located on a hillside along Laurel Cliff which the board has taken several steps in selling. The property was previously advertised for sale through a public auction, with no bids, therefore allowing it to be sold privately.

According to previous Sentinel reports, the district received the property from the county for delinquent property taxes. A sheriff sale had been held on the property a couple years ago and it did not reach an acceptable bid level. Therefore, by law, the property was deeded over to the school. The property is located on Laurel Cliff Road and formerly owned by Cora Renshaw.

Cass Cleland, Shawn Hawley, Jeff McElroy and Tracy Stone were approved as volunteer middle school track and field assistants for the 2017 season.

Ryan Payne and Ryan Jeffers were approved as varsity assistant baseball coaches for the 2017 season. Jason Mullen was approved as a volunteer varsity assistant baseball coach.

Katie Ash was approved as a substitute teacher effective March 1 for the remainder of the school year. Steven Koebel was approved as a substitute bus driver. Sarah Hoover and Mary Rose were approved as substitute personal assistants. Hoover was also approved as a substitute secretary.

Shelia Harris was approved as a tutor for the health handicapped student for the remainder of the school year at a rate of $20 per hour, for up to five hours per week.

Debra Drake was hired as an assistant to the treasurer effective March 13.

The board approved creating the Class of 2022 account.

A candy fundraiser was approved for the high school student council under the direction of advisor Donna Wolf.

The cafeteria reports for December and January were approved as submitted by Food Service Supervisor Christina Musser.
