In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as paying bills and hearing a recycling presentation, board members will once again consider approving a contract to sell the district’s Millcreek property. This item was on last month’s agenda, but board members expressed discomfort with some terms of the contract and asked Superintendent Marlin Berry to see if he could renegotiate it.
Olathe’s Millcreek property currently houses a technical education center. However, the district plans to begin building a new state-of-the-art center on the Olathe North campus this summer. Funding from the 2007 bond issue is financing the project. Last year, Net Giver LLC — a not-for-profit that builds affordable senior communities — expressed interest in Millcreek. However, they did not receive expected state funding, and so the deal fell through. This year Net Giver has made another offer on the site.
The Board of Education meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the district’s Education Center; 14160 Black Bob Road; Olathe, KS 66063.
