The City Auditorium may be rented by anyone regardless of affiliation, for profit status or purpose of use.
All persons or organizations that are interested in renting the Auditorium must submit an application to the City Clerk. The City Clerk has authorization to approve auditorium use on a reservation system as long as it does not conflict with City policy or law. For any questions call (308) 872-5831.
A damage/cleaning deposit of $200 will be required for all non-alcohol functions and $400 for all alcohol functions. If roasters are used, a $50 deposit per roaster will be required. Eight roasters are available. The damage/cleaning deposit will be returned to the applicant group upon completion of the activity, minus any cost of lost keys, damage repair or cleaning cost. If the cost exceeds the $200/$400 deposit, the applicant group will be billed and liable for such costs. If there is a disagreement concerning damages to the city property, the Mayor or his designee will investigate and bring the matter before the Council for a final decision.
All functions involving alcohol must have licensed liquor caterer.
The auditorium also has a projector that is available for use when renting the auditorium.
