WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita housing developer has offered the winning bid for a vacant elementary school in the northeastern part of the city.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/15iCtgt ) reports that Mark Cox, owner of Vintage Construction, offered $56,000 at last week's auction of the former Mueller Elementary School. The Wichita school board will now decide whether to approve the sale.

The 61-year-old school and the surrounding property of roughly four acres are zoned single-family residential. Cox says the building is in good shape, and he hopes to convert it into housing.

Mueller was one of five Wichita school buildings that closed last spring as part of cost-cutting measures and new attendance boundaries.
