FREEPORT – Questions are being raised surrounding the former Harrison Lakeland School as a village group continues its plan to acquire the building.

Members of the Harrison Youth Group met Monday to discuss recent talks with Harrison Hills City School District officials on the heels of the school board’s decision to place the property back on the auction block. District leaders announced at a recent meeting that the Freeport Township Trustees declined an offer to purchase the property for $1, but a statement from the trustees indicates the school board declined their counterproposal. Further update concerning the counterproposal and  prospect of  a charter school can be found in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
