City to seek bids for West Corinth School
CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - The city of Corinth will advertise for bids on the old West Corinth Elementary School property.
“About five to six weeks from now, hopefully, bids will be opened and considered,” City Attorney Wendell Trapp told the Daily Corinthian (http://bit.ly/1k3s8eu ).
“The bid solicitation will limit the use of the property to something consistent with the historical significance of that property,” said Trapp.
The campuses of East, West and South elementary schools are vacant. The property returned to the city when the schools were closed by the Corinth School District. Mayor Tommy Irwin has said at least one of the properties should be sold.
The vacant West Corinth school sits on battlefield property across from the interpretive center and the park service wants the land to become part of the Corinth Unit of Shiloh National Military Park.
The city is still moving toward a lease agreement with the Easom Outreach Foundation for the South Corinth school property. The lease has not been finalized.
The city can donate property in some limited circumstances, and Trapp said it is “very difficult to have a situation that does check all of those boxes.”
The west and south campuses are getting most of the attention right now.
“East has taken the back seat to these other two for now, but they (city officials) are certainly thinking about all of the options with regard to it,” said Trapp.
