At their September meeting, the Township Board passed new room usage policies and rules, opening up the Town Hall building to allow for additional types of groups and special events. Traditionally, the Town Hall has long had rooms available, free of charge, for community, non-profit, educational, and cultural organizations all based within the Township. Now, space at the Town Hall will also available to rent for fundraisers, weekend events, and private events for Township residents, such as birthday parties, wedding showers, and reunions.
Rental fees will apply for special events, and security deposits, security personnel, and permits may also be required depending upon the nature of the event. Limited alcohol usage will now be permitted as well within the Town Hall building, in addition to basic food service. Proper permits will be required from the Village of Riverside for certain alcohol and food service requests, and liability insurance coverage may be requested as well from the Township.
To review all the new room rental polices, fee structures, rules and regulations, or to fill out a rental form for either standard use or a special event, one can visit the “Forms and Downloads” section of the Township website and obtain all the necessary paperwork.
