The Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop (GFW) Board of Education is scheduled to discuss the sale of former Fairfax Middle School building in closed session in the junior/senior high auditorium, Monday, Nov.16. The Minnesota Open Meeting Law allows a school board to close a meeting to develop or consider offers or counter offers for the purchase or sale of real or personal property to be sold by the school board. On Oct. 19, the school board directed GFW Superintendent Jeff Horton to negotiate a purchase agreement with a Burnsville firm, Retro Companies, Inc., who offered $ 75,000 for the former school buildings and property. Horton said that was the only property offer received by the school district by the Oct. 2 deadline.
