04 - 05 - 2012 New Berlin wants to lease soon-to-be closed school
(DI) Members of the Mifflinburg school board learned Tuesday that the New Berlin Borough Council wants to lease the New Berlin Elementary School property after the facility closes at the end of this school year. The council sent a letter to the Mifflinburg Area School District about a week ago, asking to rent the school from the district pending any sale of the property, according to what the school Superintendent told the school board. The council did not suggest an amount for a lease or say how it plans to use the property. The letter voiced the councilâs concern over the community losing use of the property & its proposal to lease the site for a nominal fee until itâs sold.
