The realtor for the Cortland School district may have potential buyers for the former Virgil Elementary School.

The Town has decided it cannot afford to take on the building and a vote on one developer’s proposal failed last fall.

Last night, Virgil Deputy Town Supervisor Jeremy Stiles, asked if the board has plans in case another sale attempt fails in a public vote.

Stiles and the board promised to continue to talk with each other about options for the property.

Also at last night’s Cortland Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Robert Edwards said the transition of the former Parker Elementary School to city control continues and could be completed by the end of next month.

For Cortland School district families interested in a renewed Driver’s Education program, the Superintendent reported a potential cost of about $32-thousand, plus expenses for gas and insurance.

State aid is not available for Driver’s Ed, and its fate will become part of the annual budget process – to determine how to pay for it.
