The Virginia City Council says they are going on record to formally oppose the idea of a shared school on the Iron Range.

The proposed location of the new facility is in Mt. Iron, next to the Merritt Elementary. 

Virginia, Mt. Iron-Buhl, and Eveleth school leaders have decided to enter talks about the sharing of one facility.

Virginia city councilors say they don't want a school moved out of the city, and do not agree with how the shared building would be paid for. 

As proposed, funding would include taconite tax dollars.

They plan on taking formal action at next week's council meeting.
