BOE approves demolition agreement

Posted Jun 10, 2021 2:13 PM

An intergovernmental support agreement with the Department of  the Army for building demolition has been approved by the Geary USD 475 Board of Education.

It would enable Public Works, Fort Riley to demolish the former Jefferson Elementary and Fort Riley Elementary buildings. This agreement supports Fort Riley by lowering the demolition rate, and Geary County Schools USD 475 by providing free use of the Fort Riley construction debris landfill with an estimated lower cost for the demolition of Jefferson Elementary.

Both schools plan to be demolished this fall, and Fort Riley will pay the district an 8% administrative fee, estimated at $42,000, for the effort.
