“[RAINIER’S] LEASE FOR CITY FOOD BANK IN DISPUTE”
“The Rainier School District and the community’s food bank thought everyone came out ahead when the district started leasing one of its old buildings to the food bank for a $1 year.
But the state auditor says that the district isn’t charging enough in rent.
‘So what (they are) doing is asking us to charge that out of money they use for food to give to the people who need it in the community?’ Superintendent Dennis Friedrich asked last week….
The sole finding against Rainier during the district’s 2004-06 audit was that the district “is not being sufficiently paid for the land” by the RABC,” quoting The Olympian.
