7.01 Credit Card Request (A)
Background: Currently, the District has 3 credit cards that are kept at the Central office that can be checked out by Administration for use. One card has a $7000 limit and the other 2 have a $1500 limit. There are times of the year, when it becomes a juggling act to make sure we don’t send out a card that will “max out”. It is also difficult to get cards back and forth from the Buildings at times.
Recommendation: To allow for the issuance of Credit Cards for each building to be used with Activity Accounts. 2 cards at the JSH and 1 at the ES each with a $2000 limit.
