So we may not be able to sell Central to defray costs

The latest on the Red Plan. Central may not be sold.

JCI gets the figures first and massages them to minimize the damage. It would not be a lost $10 million in sales it would be a mere $2 million additional cost to taxpapers:

“But because it would be considerably cheaper to turn Central into a middle school than it would be to build an entirely new middle school, keeping Central instead of selling it would add about $2 million to the total taxpayer cost of the facilities plan, not $10 million, according to project planner Johnson Controls. The additional cost for the owner of a $125,000 home would be less than $1 a month.”
