Fees

A rental fee is required for the renting of the Greenwald Park Building, the Douglas Park Building, and the Kiwanis Park Restrooms. A deposit may also be required for these facilities. Payment in full is required when the key is received at City Hall. Deposit may be made in the form of a check which will not be cashed if key is returned and no damage is found.

The deposit may be waived at the discretion of City Staff because of rental history or in extenuating circumstances. Certain non-profit or community uses of the buildings shall be exempt from the fees and deposit requirements.

No fee or deposit is required for any pavilion. A pavilion may be used without reservation but those who have reserved the pavilion have exclusive use of the pavilion on the day they reserved it.

Rental rates and deposit amounts shall be set by the City Council, with lower rates for City residents.

Reserving and Renting Schedule

City Staff shall keep a schedule of those who have reserved or rented the facilities. Those wishing to reserve a building must complete the Facility Rental Agreement when receiving the key.
