LT refusing to pay $2 million bill from township school treasurer's office
LA GRANGE – Lyons Township High School District 204 is refusing to pay a $2 million bill for services from the Lyons Township School Treasurer's Office because of an agreement the district said it made with the treasurer’s office in 1999.
Superintendent Tim Kilrea said that although there was no official intergovernmental agreement made between the district and treasurer’s office, both sides determined that the district would pay its own staff to perform bookkeeping duties and in turn not pay the township school treasurer, who manages public funds for 13 districts in the western suburbs, including District 204.
Kilrea said the district has provided the office with 13 years of a paper trail affirming the agreement. The treasurer’s office would send invoices to the district, which then sent back invoices from its in-house treasurer showing that the services had in effect been outsourced from the township school treasurer to district staff. The documents were approved in open meetings, Kilrea said.
