MUCH MONEY ILL SPENT
Monongalia County Board of Education intends to buy (upon WVU Board of Governors’ approval, November 12th) the 8.85 acre 705/119 Mileground intersection consolidated green school site from WVU for $2,876,250.00.
Throw in another $650,000.00 or so to fill in the seven-foot-high mine voids sprawling fifty feet beneath the building location.
Then plan for the brutal costs and liability risks of siting an elementary school within illness-inducing vehicle-exhaust, on mine voids, at one of greater Morgantown’s most congested high traffic and accident-prone intersections.
The Monongalia County Board of Education: Always ready to take a bad idea and make it even worse.
