$550,000 for Washington; other sites to be shuttered by district


WILLMAR -- Washington Learning Center will be listed for sale at an asking price of $550,000.

The Willmar School Board adopted a resolution closing the building and approved a real estate listing agreement with Fenstra Real Estate.

The board conducted a brief public hearing Monday afternoon on the closing of Washington and Lincoln Elementary School.

No one from the public asked to address the issue, and the hearing was opened and closed within a few minutes.
