Lease latest plan for 'Friends' at Ellsworth area schoolhouse
TOWN OF MARTELL--Plans for the Friends of the Martell School House to preserve the historic landmark are progressing, with a lease arrangement now the favored course.
"We'd prefer a 10-year lease," Deanie Pass of the group said Friday about a proposed arrangement with the town board.
A pass-through lease is envisioned, Tom Meyer of the group said. The Friends would then assume responsibility for paying insurance and electric costs.
