LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Jefferson County Public Schools plans to sell the former Frost Middle School property in Valley Station to Louisville Gas & Electric Co. for $1 million.

The Jefferson County Board of Education approved the pending sale at its meeting Tuesday night.

Frost Middle School closed after the 2015-2016 school year and was combined with Stuart Middle on Stuart’s campus.

The former Frost campus is about 41 acres, according to Jefferson County PVA  records.

LG&E’s Mill Creek power plant is adjacent to the Frost property. Spokeswoman Liz Pratt released a statement on the sale Wednesday afternoon: 

"Purchasing this property will allow us to extend our existing station footprint and fold it into our operations. We plan to use the property without building any new structures or infrastructure at the site, and we don’t have any plans for the use of the existing structure."

JCPS will pay a broker commission worth 4 percent of the sale -- $40,000 – to O’Dell Realty & Auction Co. of Hodgenville, Kentucky, according to a contract approved by the school board.
