No more breaks on rent for churches (May 27, 2015)

“Mobile churches” that set up shop at the Sahuarita Unified School District in Arizona will now be charged full rent. Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel sent a letter April 30, outlining allegations that several churches were far exceeding the scope of their contracts, using more space for more time than they paid for and “paying” with in-kind donations that were of dubious use to the school such as an expensive sound system. “These issues expose SUSD to severe legal and financial liability,” he noted.

FFRF’s complainant reported on May 27 that signs advertising the churches were removed and that the school district told churches they could only use the space they had actually rented.
