Public to Weigh In on Proposal to Sell Phenix Elementary

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — The West Des Moines school district has a plan for Phenix Elementary, but it wants the public’s opinion before anything is finalized.

A public hearing will be held Friday at noon at the Learning Resource Center.

The hearing is on a proposal to sell the property to the city of West Des Moines for $535,000. The amount would be payable over five years and would include interest.

Earlier this year the district voted to close the school in an effort to help cut more than $3 million from its budget.
