Let’s not cheap out on our new performing arts auditorium at Kuna High School.
Kuna school board members are currently considering how much to charge groups for the use of the facility, which will have its first open house to the public on Feb. 22 and its first performance on Feb. 25 and 26.
A committee of volunteers and district employees has been discussing the details of the facility, including how much to charge people to use the facility. One of the questions yet to be answered includes whether to encourage a lot of use by making the fees inexpensive or discourage use by making the fees expensive. I hope the district sets the fee toward the top of the scale, not necessarily to discourage use but to make sure we aren’t overburdening the facility and to make sure we, the taxpayers, don’t end up subsidizing its use.
