Westminster council OKs new rental fees

The Westminster City Council approved a new rental fee schedule for the Longwell Municipal Center at the Monday night council meeting.

Charges will be: athletic events with nonprofit sponsors, $15 an hour, for-profit sponsors, $18 an hour; dances with nonprofit sponsors, $300, for-profit, $400; other events, closed to public with nonprofit sponsors, $30 an hour, open to public with nonprofit sponsors, $30 an hour plus two-hour service charge, open to public with for-profit sponsors, $300 up to six hours, $50 each additional hour.

The schedule replaces a charge of $15 an hour for nonprofit groups and $18 an hour for groups attempting to make a profit. Carol Donovan, city recreation director, said the new schedule was designed for the varied uses now available at the center.

Mrs. Donovan said the city rented the center gym only for athletic events while the Police Department was housed in the basement of the building. The department moved into a new police headquarters last September.
