Claim: PWSD went on a spending spree for furniture at the new district HQ building and refused to use the existing furniture at the old HQ building.

Fact: PWSD did allocate approximately $1 million dollars to furnish the building with items including desks, chairs, conference tables, kitchen furniture, and cabinetry for the full build-out of 180 employees.

This decision was made due to the fact that the furniture at the old headquarters and other locations did not fit the new space, nor was there enough of it available to meet our needs in the new building.

Additionally, PWSD has listed our former headquarters building for rent, in an effort to bring in additional revenue to the district while also being good stewards of our facilities. It was necessary to keep the existing furniture at that building for use by future tenants.
