REED CITY \u2014 The Reed City city council approved an updated fee schedule during its recent meeting. The updated fee schedule includes changes to fees related to rental of the Reed City Depot, which were approved by the city council. \u201cThis is primarily an update to include those things over the year where action has been taken by the council,\u201d city manager Rob Howell said. \u201cWith respect to the Depot rentals, when things switched over to the city, we didn\u2019t really have those incorporated into the city\u2019s fee schedule because the Chamber was handling it, so this will incorporate those.\u201d Council member Nate Bailey reminded the council that there had been discussions about changing the Depot rental rates and asked that the council take up the issue along with the updated fee schedule. \u201cIf we can tackle that really quickly, then we can include that in the motion to adopt the fee schedule,\u201d Bailey said. \u201cWe talked about making separate fees, depending on the days, incentivizing use on days when it is not getting a lot of rentals,\u201d he added. \u201cWe also talked about changing the pavilion rental to allow for hourly rates so that groups that need it for three or four hours don\u2019t have to pay for the full day.\u201d The newly adopted rental rates are as follows: \u2022 Monday through Wednesday - $20 per hour \u2022 Thursday through Sunday - $25 per hour \u2022 All day rental - $175 \u2022 Outdoor pavilion - $10 per hour\/$50 for all day Bailey added that for ease of accounting, the deposit requirement has been removed, since in order to be confirmed on the schedule the renter has to pay up front anyway. Mayor Roger Meinert asked if they would continue to waive the fees for certain groups. \u201cIt is difficult to say that one group is more deserving of waivers than another, so I would say, at this point, to maintain the fees as is and if they need help paying for those fees leave it up to local government and local businesses to help them out,\u201d Bailey said. The outdoor venue will remain free of charge for public community events. Rental fees for Rambadt Park and Westerburg Park pavilions will remain the same: $50 per day for residents and $75 per day for nonresidents.
