Oxford Adds Security Fee To Center Rental

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – The Oxford Park Commission may ask nonprofit groups to pay for security during events at the Stone Center.

The Oxford Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/Xi8bFJ) that the commission in November waived the $50 an hour usage fee for nonprofit organizations renting the Stone Center for meetings or events.

Commission deputy director Bubba Robinson says the issue of security fees wasn’t addressed.

Robinson says the commission pays Cobra security $15 an hour whenever there’s an event at the center.

Robinson asked the board this past week to revise the rental policy to provide that nonprofit groups must pay the $15 an hour security fee to cover the OPC’s cost for Cobra.

The board delayed any decision until it could read a written policy when it meets in January.
