However, under certain circumstances when the district is deriving benefit, the district may expend funds for food and beverage consumed by staff and others while in the conduct of the business of the district.
The superintendent is directed to establish procedures which reflect the intent of the board to provide for reasonable food and beverage consumption while in the conduct of business that is of benefit to the district. Such expenditures shall be supported by statements that show:
- The occasion for incurring expenses,
- The nature of expenses that were incurred, and
- The general nature of the business that was being conducted.
