Town officials in Mulgrave say planning for a future use for Mulgrave Memorial Education Centre has been on hold.
The P-6 school will close at the end of the current school year; town officials will take ownership of the building in early July.
After Monday night’s regular town council meeting, Ralph Hadley, the town’s mayor, said members of a committee discussing the building’s future are waiting for an environmental assessment.
“I talked to a person last week and they said the report was finished and we’re just waiting for it to go through the proper hands to look at it and sign off,” he said. “Then they’re going to contact us and we’re going to have a meeting.”
Hadley said the 15 committee members haven’t met since they did a walk-through of the building in April.
He said town officials will sit down with the Education Minister Zach Churchill regarding possible funding in response to the environmental assessment at the end of May.
