School offices on move

Monroe shifts to temporary site

        MONROE — City school leaders will move into a former police station on Lebanon Street until their new offices in Overbrook Park are ready, officials said Monday.

        Plans to move into the former McGee's IGA on Main Street were scrapped because the $4,523 monthly rent was too high forthe new district, said Steve Campbell, who chaired the finance committee.

        He was named director of facilities and operations at Monday night's school board meeting.

Short-term, rent-free
        Posey Properties, which owns the former police station, offered the schools that site rent-free until the new offices are ready in about eight weeks, Mr. Campbell said.

        The district will lease about 3,000 square feet for administrators, including the treasurer and staff, superintendent and staff, school psychologists, curriculum director and the facilities director. Principals will have offices in the two schools.

        Mr. Campbell said he is still studying options for storage space.

        The $3,200 monthly rent for the office space and storage will be less than the cost to rent and renovate the IGA, Mr. Campbell said.

On the move
        “I hope we can start moving in next week,” Mr. Campbell said.

        “We really need to move out of the city's tax department,” he added. “They have been very gracious but we need our own space.”

        New desks, chairs and office furnishings will be ordered and placed in the Overbrook Park offices when they are ready.
