OGDENSBURG There are no buyers for the former Sherman Elementary School.
No bids of at least $250,000 for the 16,000-square-foot Franklin Street building, which closed last spring, arrived by Tuesdays 10 a.m. deadline.
We had some people call, but thats it, said Jeffrey R. Swanson, the Ogdensburg City School District business manager.
Mr. Swanson said the Board of Education likely will discuss the matter at its next meeting, which is Monday. He predicts a new marketing strategy with a bottom-line twist.
Well probably have to lower the minimum bid, Mr. Swanson said.
Mr. Swanson said the ultimate sale price will be only the beginning for the buyer, no matter what the plans are for the buildings use.
Whoever buys it will probably have to spend their own money to convert it, he said.
