LEMONT – A Lemont Bromberek School District 113A committee formed to determine the future of the closed Central School is seeking community members to join.

The committee hopes to add one person with a background in real estate.

School board member Patrick Kerrigan discussed the committee's first meeting at the board's July 17 meeting. The committee determined that repairs to prepare the school to reopen or be leased would cost $150,000. Even if the school remains closed, the district would still need to repair the roof.

The district will next put out a notice to determine community interest in leasing the school. If the buidling is leased to a private school or business office, the property would need to be rezoned.

The next committee meeting is on Thursday, Sept. 12. To inquire about joining the committee, email Kerrigan at
