CRESTVIEW — City Clerk Betsy Roy has called a new city facilities rental fee schedule "simpler, easier and more fair across the board.”

The fee schedule — which the city council unanimously approved April 22 — delineates rental charges for the Crestview Community Center, Warriors Hall in the Whitehurst Municipal Building, and the Old Spanish Trail Park amphitheater.

Though the rental schedule was simplified, eliminating per-hour charges, most fees increased. For example, the Community Center rental period expanded to four hours at $200 per event without food served, as opposed to the previous fee of $100 for two hours and $20 per additional hour.

As under the previous schedule, rentals for events at which food is served are slightly higher, with the Community Center now renting for $300 for four hours. Only catered food can be served at Warriors Hall, which lacks a kitchen.

Refundable deposits on all three facilities were standardized to $100 or $200 for events at which alcohol is served. Only non-profit organizations may sell alcohol on city property.

New city facility rental fees

The Crestview City Council’s newly adopted fees are effective May 1. Rental applications are available at the city clerk's office in city hall.
