CAP went to speak with Susan Williams at the MDRS office in Madison. Susan Williams explained to CAP where MDRS paid for both summer school semesters for rent and school and Cody Friga only went to one. Susan Williams told CAP that Cody Friga is the vender for his boarding and MDRS mailed a check to Mr. Friga P.O. Box on campus. CAP talked to Mr. Friga about the check MDRS mailed to his P.O. Box on campus and Mr. Friga told CAP he had no clue he had a P.O. Box. CAP also went over his rent and how MDRS cut his rent being paid for the fall semester because MDRS paid for rent over the full summer. CAP explained to Mr. Friga how he only took the first semester of summer school but MDRS paid for rent and school for both. Thats why Mr. Frigas rent and school payments were late. CAP talked to MDRS and worked out where MDRS would pay for the fall semester in full and have cut backs on the spring where Mr. Friga can save up to cover the spring semester. CAP reiterated to Mr. Friga about asking for finances from MDRS at the end of the fall semester where hell know how much hell have to come up with for the spring. <p><p>
