Reservations for fairground buildings or facilities may be made no more than one year in advance to the exact date. In the event that the one year to date reservation falls on a weekend or holiday, the earliest reservation day shall be the next following work day.


Damage/Reservation Deposit

For the reservation or scheduled usage of all fairground buildings or facilities, a $100.00 damage/reservation deposit shall be paid within two weeks after the reservation is made. This deposit will be returned in full within 2-4 weeks following the building use, the return of the building key and an inspection of the building.


Charges will be made against the deposit if special cleaning, repairs or additional services are required to return facility to existing condition prior to use. Charges will be based on time and materials and will be deducted from the deposit. The remainder of the deposit will be returned to the user, unless the charges exceed the deposit, in which case the user shall be billed for the difference. In any case wherein a deposit or portion of a deposit is retained, a bill shall be completed, marked paid and a copy given to the user.


The adult signing the facility use form assumes complete responsibility for any and all damages, missing items and cleaning responsibilities. A listing of responsibilities for care and cleaning of each building or facility will be provided to the user when the fee is paid and/or key picked up. A cleaning confirmation form must be completed and returned to the Parks and Recreation Department office following the event, along with any keys that were checked out prior to the refund of the damage/reservation deposit.


Cancellations must be received 30 days prior to the event. Cancellation made after this period will forfeit the $100.00 damage/reservation deposit.


Keys may be picked up no more than two days in advance (Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) at the Parks & Recreation office and should be returned the first working day following use of the facility.


Special Fees and Charges

Other special needs such as additional water, electric, trash removal, ground space, barricades and road signs, exterior ground lighting, bleachers, snow removal, etc., will be charged on a time and material basis. These services shall be agreed to prior to the facility usage.
