Osseo Discusses Changes to the Community Center Rental Policy
The Osseo Community Center room is frequently used for city programs, but it also can be rented out by residents and non-residents.
City council discussed five changes to the rental policy.
Changes could include an increase in fees. These fees are lower than neighboring communities, but prices could go up from $30 for a half-day rental to $50 for a resident or local business. Non-residents could say half-day rental go up from $75 to $100. City documents say Osseo changes between 25-50 percent of what neighboring communities do for similar facilities.
Changes could also include formalized cleanup charges, holding a credit card on file for damages, and increased pay for the staff performing clean-up duties.
City staff are also proposing that renters are allowed to bring their preferred alcohol caterer to the community center, which they say would allow renters to find the caterer that best fits the needs of their event.
The city council may take action on these items in the future. You can listen to the full discussion here.
