Crawford trustees plan to revisit the town's rental rate schedule for the newly remodeled community room and other rooms at Town Hall at tonight's regularly scheduled work session. The issues of the rates, where were passed in August, came up at the Oct. 8 town meeting when Crawford Chamber president Connie Layton, speaking on behalf of the Fruitland Mesa Club, requested that the rental for this year's annual craft fair be waived, since the club can't afford the $100 rate. Trustee Hetty Todd also noted that money made at the fair circulates back to the community.
Current rates are as follows:
Small classroom - $30
Community Room - $100
Historical Classroom - $30
Commercial Kitchen - $100
Damage deposit - $250
Internet usage - $5
Town Park/stage - no charge for use; electrical hook-up - $25
Deposit for off-site use of tables/chairs - $50
Mayor Susie Steckel is also concerned about the rates, in light of the current economy. "We will revisit room rents so the community can use them instead of have them sitting up there like a shrine."
Trustees will also discuss the ongoing broadband issue, as well as the draft 2016 budget. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
