School Board votes to sell Washington for $400,000


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School Board has approved the sale of the Washington Learning Center Monday.

The board voted Monday to accept an offer of $400,000 from Royal Investments Group of Spicer. The vote on the resolution to sell the building passed 5-to-0, with board member Dion Warne abstaining.

The Washington building is closing this summer as part of a school district restructuring. The board adopted the restructuring plan last spring as part of a budget-cutting effort.
