The purpose of the Committee is to review and analyze real property that is owned by Twin Rivers USD and to determine what real property could be designated as "excess" or "surplus" because it will not be needed for school purposes. The Committee will then present a report to the Board of Trustees recommending uses for the surplus property or how to dispose of the property (e.g., sale, lease, etc.). The Board approved the Committee's recommendations on May 23, 2017.
