Title 70. Schools
§70-2211. Leases to nonprofit corporations.
In any instance in which the Board shall consider it preferable to acquire the building or additions to existing buildings and equipment therefor in the manner authorized in this section rather than through the issuance of bonds by the Board, it may do so by complying with this section. In each such case the Board is authorized to lease to any nonprofit corporation, organized for the purpose of constructing the building or additions to existing buildings, such portion or portions of the campus of the institution as may be necessary as sites therefor. The lease shall contain such provisions with respect to the type, construction, and operation of any such building or addition as the Board may consider desirable, and the Board may enter into agreements with the nonprofit corporation as to the use which will be made of any such building or addition, the operation, maintenance, and supervision of said building or addition, the imposition of fees and charges by the Board for the use of the building or addition, and the collection and disposition to be made of the proceeds of such fees and charges. The Board may agree to make such fees and charges adequate to provide a sum sufficient to pay the cost of the maintenance and operation of the building or any addition to existing buildings and the amortization of the cost of the building or any addition to existing buildings and equipment therefor, over a specified period of years, and when such cost shall have been paid and any obligations issued by the nonprofit corporation to finance such cost shall have been fully paid as to principal and interest, the lease shall terminate and title to the building or any addition to existing buildings and equipment shall vest in the Board. The agreements herein authorized to be entered into by the Board may, in the discretion of the Board, include a lease of the buildings from the nonprofit corporation and the payment of rentals therefor. The Board may furnish, without charge, heat, light, water, power, and similar facilities for any building erected under the provisions of this section and all buildings and additions to existing buildings so erected and equipment therefor shall be exempt from taxation.
