Washington Township Delays Destruction of Elementary School

The Washington Township Board members recently conducted a meeting to open bids for the demolition of the Washington Township Elementary School, but it was decided to hold off on accepting bids.

Washington Township Trustee Shelly Kemble said the board wants to make sure all of the paperwork is in compliance with the Department of Natural Resources requirements concerning debris removal. An attorney will be hired to make sure that paperwork is in place.

The board voted to demolish the old Washington Township Elementary School due to safety reasons. When the project is complete, there are plans to create a use for the space but no specific plans have been approved.
