2 I The Lovell Chronicle I May 27, 2010 www. LovellChronicle.com School district sells home ec cottage to Byron BY BRAD DEVEREAUX A new business in Byron will be able to proceed with further plan- ning following action at the Big Horn County School District No. 1 School Board meeting Thursday, May 20. The school board made a motion to sell the home ec cottage in Byron to the Town of Byron. The town has plans to lease the building to Positive Progressions for use as a mental health facility. The district voted to sell the building to the town for $10 in a first right of refusal contract, which would give the school dis- trict the option of purchasing the building back in the event that Positive Progressions (or another business) is unsuccessful while us- ing the building. Board member Paul Rasmus- sen said though the building has some value to the district and it could possibly be converted into a home, the board felt a business moving into the available building would be a benefit to everyone. "We feel like we did the right thing and we could get over some of the bad feelings we've had and get back to where those feelings weren't there," Rasmussen said in an interview Monday. "I felt like the board was trying to do the right thing for the people of By- ron." He said the reason for the sale wasn't to please the people of By- ron, but said he hopes it helps "mend fences." Superintendent of Schools Shon Hocker said the board is op- timistic that the sale will work out well and the planned facility would provide much-needed serv- ices to northwest Wyoming. The Byron School Facilities Committee was to meet with Nate Cook of Positive Progressions Tuesday at 5 p.m. to discuss fur- ther plans of the business, accord- ing to Bret George. The committee met last week with a grant writer and the Wy- oming Business Council. George said the group still has concerns about funding for the project and might know more following Tues- days meeting.
