Nearly $500,000 spent on vacant Mantua school:
Township residents question expenses


By Diane Smith

Record-Courier staff writer

MANTUA TOWNSHIP — Nearly half a million dollars has been invested in the former Mantua Center School in the form of utility bills, loan payments and repairs, according to a recent analysis of township records.

Township residents recently made a public records request for all expenditures on the landmark since trustees purchased it in 2004. The figures show that trustees have spent $244,163 out of the original $257,448 loan. Another $250,659 has been spent out of the general fund, for a grand total of $494,823.

The expenditures over the years included rents and leases, repair and maintenance from the general fund, gas, electric and telephone, all needed to maintain the heating system, capital improvements and water and sewer expenses, including portable toilets and inspections, Fiscal Officer Marie Stehli said. Architecture bills and building permits also are included in the tally, but insurance expenses were not part of the tabulation.
