Manteca Unified seeks more business tenants

Manteca Unified will continue to make use of the old administration building.

Trustees gave their OK last Tuesday to lease available spaces to professional or business services.

“We’re not leasing the entire building,” Superintendent Jason Messer said during the school board session.

The move comes with the promise of potential revenue for Manteca Unified.

“Any money will go back to our general fund,” said Messer.

The general fund helps pay for employee salaries.

It wasn’t too long ago that the building was the hub of the district’s operation prior to the opening of the three-story facility.

“We’re still using a part of the old administration building for storage,” Messer said.

Premiere Credit Union occupies space in the building, relocating here from its Lathrop location during the past year.

Messer indicated that district facility will be available strictly to professional tenants and not retailers or any business with a high volume of traffic.

Professional tenants will be responsible for providing upgrades, Messer said.

The district, however, would foot the bill for moving the fences, if necessary.

“The fence is only a short span and it wouldn’t be that pricey for us to do,” said Messer.
