Vacaville City Council approves facility use agreement

By From page A4 | October 10, 2012

VACAVILLE — Three years of talks over how much access the City of Vacaville and the Vacaville schools should have to each others’ facilities, and how much that access should cost, ended Tuesday night with an agreement.

The Vacaville City Council unanimously approved an agreement that allows the city to use school facilities and the school district be allowed to do likewise, free of charge up to $5,000, the value of that use based on fees each entity would otherwise charge.

This replaces a 10-year agreement that ran out in 2009 but had not been replaced until now due to off-and-on again talks that didn’t seem to go anywhere.

For the city, the uses of school district facilities are typically for recreation programs, occasional meetings by city departments and overflow space for programs such as TGIF youth programs.

Council members were pleased with the outcome, thanking Vacaville City Manager Laura Kuhn as well as the Vacaville Unified School District administration and its governing board for their help.

The Vacaville School Board gave its approval in late September. The agreement will be reassessed at the end of this school year to see how effective it has been.
