Bronson may change direction with school board

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Despite "hurt feelings" and a unanimous vote by Bronson Town Council members April 1 to forego any more dealings with the Levy County School Board on the use or purchase of the Old Bronson High School Gym, a deal now seems to be in the works.

Several town staff members, along with Vice Mayor Berlon Weeks, attended Tuesday morning's school board meeting at the promise of a proposal on the matter. And that's what they got.

School Board Superintendent Bob Hastings put forth an agreement to purchase the gym and surrounding parking lot for $200,000. An option to purchase a nearby multi-purpose building for $100,000 was also offered, as well as the possibility of purchase or use of the football field at the facility, though no figure was provided for the value of the latter. The school board approved the proposal unanimously.

"I think this is a good thing," Weeks said. "Thank you for the offer," later adding that the council would have to take the proposal into consideration.
