Nine properties in Columbus, including some former schools, will be for sale if the Muscogee County School Board approves the superintendent’s recommendation to declare them surplus.

The board is scheduled to vote during its monthly meeting Monday, starting at 6 p.m. in the Muscogee County Public Education Center, 2960 Macon Road.

The administration has determined these properties no longer serve the school district’s purpose and wants to sell them:
