Deposit

A $100.00 deposit is required for groups of 100 persons in size or less. A $150.00 deposit is required for groups larger than 100 persons. All deposits are held by the own of Lyons until the date of the event. All deposits are fully refundable, as long as the user(s) has complied with the terms outlined in the Town of Lyons Facilities Rental and Use Agreement and the facility meets post-event inspection standards. Further charges may be applied depending on actual damage or cleanliness of the facility.

**Please note that the Town of Lyons relies on the user(s) to estimate group size as accurately as possible. The Park Host will also be monitoring group size, among other things, the day of the event. If it is found that the user’s estimation of group size was considerably low, a portion of the damage deposit may be withheld to recover the difference. Please provide all information as accurately as possible so that we may serve you better.

Payment

Credit Card: To pay by card, please include the card information within the Facility Rental Use Agreement (pg. 3).
Check: To pay by check, please include two checks (deposit and rental fees) within the application.
