That’s according to President Tim Brewer who says the school will pay just over $46,000 for the site.  The school had been set to pay Fred Godley more than $400,000 for delivery of a clean property. 

Mitchell will now assume the responsibility of getting the site ready for construction of an allied health sciences building.  Brewer says money saved on purchase price can be used for that expense.
