Recently my ward and a Spanish branch who also meets in our building have been halfway joined. I say that because the Primary, Young Men, and Young Women meet together on Sunday, and midweek for activities. However the HP, EQ, and RS, still have their own separate meetings. Each unit still has their own Sacrament meeting. The Primary, Young Men and Young Women have presidencies with members from both units. For example, the Primary presidency has the President, 2nd and 3rd counselors are from my unit, but the 1st counselor and secretary are from the Spanish branch. This has been done under the direction of our Stake President.
So, when the Primary, Young Men, or Young Women have an activity and my unit's Bishop authorizes a reimbursement check, can I bill the other unit for their portion of the expense? If so, can I deposit that billed (and supposedly received) amount into the Primary, Young Men, or Young Women budget? If that is not the correct way of handling it, what should I recommend to my Bishop and the Branch President?
One idea I have if the "billing way" is not correct is to receive the paper work for the reimbursement, then only write a portion of the expense out of my ward's budget then ask the Spanish branch to write the remaining portion of the expense out of their budget. Then reimbursement recipient then would receives two checks.
What do you think?
