St. Charles School Board makes deal to purchase land
Board plans to build new maintenance building at new site
By M. Susanne Hinkle - Feb 23, 2006
The St. Charles Parish School Board recently approved a motion to purchase 2.3 acres of the land in Luling adjacent to R.K Smith School for $250,000, $15,000 less that the original appraisal of the land. The school system has future plans to construct a brand new maintenance building at the site.
The building that formally housed the school system's maintenance crew, old Luling Elementary, was severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, losing its roof and leaving only the first floor habitable. "After the insurance company surveyed the damage to Luling Elementary it was declared condemned and no longer useful to the maintenance staff," said Larry Sesser, Superintendent of Plant Services for St. Charles Parish Public Schools. “Since the building was declared condemned, the maintenance staff is currently being housed in rental trailers and a new facility is greatly needed.”
