The Roeland Park City Council voted 6-0 Monday night to accept the latest offer from Community Living Opportunities for the school, which will become the new home of the Kansas City Autism Training Center. Councilmember Toni Hull was absent and there is a vacancy in Ward 4.
The council rejected a $550,000 offer earlier this year. Under the new deal, the organization will pay $650,000 for the building; however, only $550,000 would be paid at closing. The city will carry a 10-year, $100,000 second mortgage on the building. The interest rate for the first three years will be 3.5 percent and then rise to 7 percent.
The city will ensure that the roof, windows, plumbing and air-conditioning work and spend as much as $15,000 on other repairs. The closing deadline is September 1.
