COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A public hearing on the sale of Walnut Grove Elementary School has been postponed.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/1NK8mGF ) that the Council Bluffs Community School District is considering selling the former school to NeighborWorks Home Solutions. The group would demolish the building to make way for houses built by students at Iowa Western Community College, as well as the school district’s Tucker College & Career Center.

Officials say no decision has yet been made on accepting the sale. The school board will make that decision after paperwork is ready and the public has been given a chance to offer testimony on the proposal.

A new date for the hearing will be announced later.
