Millikin is a matter of money

I agree that Millikin should be put to use. But, I encourage the school board to think carefully about its decision, as it is a matter of money.

If Millikin is sold to Mosdos Ohr Hatorah School it will not bring in any tax dollars because the school is a nonprofit organization. 

Leasing Millikin to any qualified tenant seems reasonable; the building would be occupied and bring in some revenue for the schools. But, selling Millikin in this market does not seem wise. If Millikin must be sold, I hope the board sells it to a private enterprise; that would bring in some much needed tax dollars every year.

Leasing, not selling would be the best decision for the entire taxpaying community—the best use not just for today, but for a few years from now when our economic difficulties work themselves out.
