SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS
Hillsborough County Public Schools' facilities are available for rent to private entities following the fee schedule established by the School Board. Periodically that fee schedule has been updated to reflect increases in costs to maintain and operate the facilities and increases in staff salaries as may be applicable. The proposed update to the fee schedule includes increases in costs to reflect actual staff and energy costs for the use of facilities and increases in the base cost to rent the facilities to ensure adequate funds to operate and maintain the facilities.
The Administration, Business and Facilities Divisions were involved in reviewing the proposed fees and the fee structure for similar facilities both locally and across the state. This information was examined to assist in establishing a fee schedule that is reasonable, yet ensures that allowing non-school functions at the schools does not COST the School District money.
According to the terms of the Cooperative Use Agreement, this fee schedule is not applicable when the facility is being used by other local governmental entities. Previously approved interlocal agreements are in effect for such purposes.
