Community center operations may change

Thursday night's meeting between the Sunnyside School Board and the Sunnyside City Council spurred a couple of ideas about partnerships between the two entities.

One of the ideas to form a partnership came from Council member Bruce Ricks.

Ricks suggested that the city and the school district enter into talks to have the school district take over operations of the Sunnyside Community Center, which the city owns.

The Sunnyside Community Center is being managed by the Washington State Migrant Council (WSMC). However, WSMC recently terminated its contract with the city and will cease operating the center on Nov. 30.

Ricks encouraged Sunnyside City Manager Bob Stockwell and Sunnyside School District Superintendent Rick Cole to get together and talk about the issue as soon as possible.

The two sides agreed to talk further about the matter.
