The D.C. Everest School District received three bids on the Easton Elementary School property, which now sits vacant northeast of Wausau on County Road Q.
In May the school board voted to close the school along with Schofield Elementary School because of a reduction in state funding.
According to the district's business administrator, Jack Stoskopf, the highest bid came from AP Investments, owned by Andy and Peggy Olson for $33,600. The second highest bid of $25,250 was placed by Aquila Resources, a gold mining company. Wausau resident Roger Olshanski bid $15,000 for the property.
The bids now go to the school board for a vote on Feb. 22.
The district is also looking for buyers of the Schofield property. They're currently re-bidding after two bids came in that were rejected by the board for being too low. This time there is a minimum bid of $75,000 for the Grand Avenue property.
