Greene County School’s purchase of the former National Guard armory for use as a bus garage has hit a small snag.
The purchase is contingent on the boiler and septic system working. The boiler was winterized about six years ago, and that included removing the gas meter. No inspection can be done on the boiler until Alliant Energy installs a new meter.
The school is purchasing the building from Greene County for $250,000, if all systems work. The county secondary roads department has used the facility for cold storage and took the boiler out of use then.
School superintendent Tim Christensen said Wednesday he doesn’t know when Alliant will install the meter. “Obviously, the sooner the better,” he said. It is unknown if the inspections will be done prior to the school board’s regular meeting Dec. 21.
