Bank raises rent on Baker school offices
BAKER, La. - The Baker school district is going to be paying more for the office space it rents.
Superintendent Ulysses Joseph tells The Advocate the offices at the rear of a former Hancock Bank building have been occupied by the district since around 2000.
An adjacent annex, also owned by the bank, was added when the district broke off from East Baton Rouge Parish in 2003.
The property is now managed by Hancock subsidiary Whitney Bank.
Joseph says the district has been paying $4 per square foot monthly for about 3,300 square feet of office space.
He told School Board members that Whitney is raising the rate to $10 per square foot.
