Q May a board of supervisors pay for utilities for the Superintendent of Educationís office that will be housed on property and in buildings owned by the Tate County School District?

A No, if the office of the school Superintendent is located on property owned by the school district, the board of supervisors is neither obligated nor required to pay the school district for the utilities or rent. Rather, the school board is responsible for the utilities of the Superintendentís office located on school property. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Lamar, February 12, 2016)
