Possible New Tenant For Ruston School
The Ruston City Council discussed negotiations that are underway with Catholic Community Services to rent a good portion of the empty space at the Ruston School building. The current plan is to move their Family Preservation unit to Ruston, bringing 20 to 22 employees in mostly administrative roles. These services focus on foster families, with kids generally age 10 to 12 years old. The family services are provided at their home, so very there is very limited interaction with clients at the offices. Catholic Community Services hopes to add $50,000 in tenant improvements to the space and brings much needed revenue to this city asset. After discussion that included assurances of the limited scope of client services from the building, the council authorized the mayor to finalize the lease and proceed.
