VALLEY- On Monday, Valley Mayor Leonard Riley, and Council voted unanimously to donate a piece of property behind GFA across from W.F.Burns for a possible location for the new consolidated high school.
The property sits on 73.75 acres, and will now go to the Chambers County School District for consideration.
"This land is owned by the city of Valley, and it is all free, and clear. It has all the infrastructure the Chambers County School District needs. It has water, sewer, etc.", said Valley Mayor Leonard Riley.
The Chambers County School District has formed a committee to look at all requests. In addition to Valley, the city of LaFayette has also sent a letter regarding land for the school district to look at as the city has submitted a letter as well as a map of a proposed location.
In other Chambers County School District news, the CCDS Dress Code Expo was a big success this past weekend as parents had many questions answered, and were able to save lots of money during the tax-free holiday.
"The vendors were happy, the community was supportive, and we feel
really good about the turn out", said Assistant Superintendent David Owen.
