The sale of Bass Lake as surplus property was approved by the board of the El Dorado Irrigation District at its June 9 meeting.
The 152-acre property was sold to the Rescue Union School District for $300,000. Rescue has long-term plans to build a school on the property.
The sale was approved on a 4 to 1 vote, with Director Greg Prada voting no. Prada thought the district should have received more money for the property.
