Boonville Building Needs Use
After five years of vacancy the city is considering selling the remaining buildings of the former Kemper Military Academy. One is already used by the Boonslick Heartland YMCA.
The city projects that renovations could cost millions. Residents who live nearby would like new neighbors.
"Kemper Military Academy needs to be addressed, and needs to be done something with to benefit the city as well as the community," said Boonville resident Ron Schmitz.
The city has rejected two previous bids from potential buyers for the property.
