Manatee schools Superintendent Rick Mills to meet with residents about park at Miller Elementary

Posted by MARC R. MASFERRER on April 25, 2014 

BRADENTON -- Manatee County Schools Superintendent Rick Mills on Tuesday will meet with local residents about the possible sale of land near Miller Elementary School.

The district has received an unsolicited offer for the property along Manatee Avenue West, the site of a former school building now known as McKelvey Park. District officials are considering the offer.

Some parents and other residents have objected to selling the property for development. The district would use the proceeds to close a financial deficit.

The meeting is set to start 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Miller Elementary, 601 43rd St. W.
