St. Marys City Schools officials signed an agreement Friday to purchase a 73-acre tract of land north of town for the purpose of locating a new high school/middle school complex.
The property, directly across U.S. 33 from St. Marys Chrysler, is owned by Paul Fortman, who received a $10,000 option on the $1 million price for the land. The option money will be applied to the purchase price if the 6.9 mill, 28-year bond levy passes in November. The price per acre amounts to nearly $13,700. [More
