6.10 Facility Rentals

With respect to the setting of fees for the use of facilities that are owned and operated by the Maricopa Community Colleges by non-Maricopa individuals and organizations, the Chancellor shall direct that rental rates are set annually at the lowest level reasonably possible consistent with legal limits, including the so-called “gift clause” of the Arizona Constitution; statutory limitations on competition with private enterprise; statutory prohibition against use of district resources to influence elections; use restrictions imposed through district bond obligations; and such other restrictions as may be imposed by law. Board policies, administrative regulations, and guidelines concerning facilities use will be construed consistent with the goal of setting facilities rental rates as low as possible within the law.

Accordingly the Chancellor shall:

  1. Develop and implement a rate structure for the use of college/district facilities;
  2. Develop and implement charges for related expenses including equipment and personnel services;
  3. Develop and implement charges for utilities;
  4. Develop and implement a rate structure related to the taxation of rental income.
