The Galesburg School Board will go back to the drawing board to figure out how to sell Cooke Elementary School.

That’s because the board this afternoon voted to reject both of the bids received for the just-closed facility:  one from West Central Community Services Head Start for $200,000, and one from the Galesburg Rescue Mission for just over$279,000.

Galesburg City Council Debates Pest Control Bid

For the last 15 years, American Pest Control has provided insect removal services to the City of Galesburg without a formal agreement.

American Pest Control is based out of the Hanna City, but because a Galesburg based pest control firm expressed interest in providing pricing, the City opened pest control up to bid.
