Who gets the money and why?

Civic Center Would someone please explain to me why the taxpayers of Woodinville have to pay $7.5 million for something they already own?
   The property belonged to the Woodinville School District until the Northshore School District took over.
   I want to know who gets the $7.5 million, and why?
   I have lived in Woodinville for 40 years and paid taxes for schools, and I am not too enthused about buying something that I believe we already own, so I will be voting a big "no."
