Chamblee Middle School: Lights Are On, No One's Home
District keeps lights and other utilities on at the school to protect the now-defunct building.
Taxpayers are paying to light a school in Dunwoody that's been closed for six years, 11Alive reports.
The DeKalb school district keeps the lights burning at Chamblee Middle School - even during the day - to ensure safety and protection.
District spokesman Walter Woods said that it was a "very minimal" cost to the district to keep some utilities running at the school, located on Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
A reporter asked why the lights at the school weren't set on a timer so that they weren't on during the day.
The district, which proposed a budget this week that would include a tax increase, hasn't decided what to do with the building.
