03 - 06 - 2013 Arguments heard in suit against M/J CTC
LEWISTOWN - Attorneys representing Mifflin and Juniata County school districts in a lawsuit regarding the future of the Mifflin-Juniata Career and Technology Center gave impassioned arguments Tuesday during a hearing at the Mifflin County Courthouse. The CTC is a vocational educational center built in 1968 in Mifflin County where several programs are offered to high school students in both counties. Mifflin County School District terminated a long-standing agreement with Juniata County School District regarding the CTC during a school board meeting on July 26, 2012. Shortly thereafter the Mifflin County School District, by and through its Board of Directors, filed a lawsuit asking the court to award ownership of the land to MCSD. At present, Mifflin County School District owns roughly 71 percent of the land, while Juniata County School District owns roughly 29 percent of the land.
