Purchase agreeement on school site approved

By Andrea Vargo

Purchase of the Gordon Dalbec property on Wright County Rds. 6 and 30, just south of Victor Township Hall, was approved by the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted (HLWW) School Board Tuesday.

The 80-acre site is slated to be the home of the proposed high school and will cost the school district $450,000, according to the agreement.

The school district has the right to terminate the agreement, if a bond referendum for the new school does not pass, said Superintendent Riley Hoheisel.

The Long Range Facilities Task Force recommended this site to the school board, and it accepted the site as the best solution for the district.

First the site must be approved by Victor Township, and the next step in that process will take place at a special township meeting Thursday, March 2, at 8 p.m. in the Victor Township Hall, said HLWW Superintendent Riley Hoheisel.

The township recently completed a land use plan, and an exception will have to be made to build a school in that location.

Hoheisel reminded the board that the bond referendum is on whether or not to build a new school. The location is already set, he said.
