Basis of fee assessment.

(1) The basis for establishing and charging fees reflects the college's assessment of the present market, the cost of operations, and an evaluation of the intended purpose and its relationship to the purposes of this college. The board of trustees has determined that groups or organizations affiliated with the college should be permitted access to facilities at the lowest charge on the fee schedule which may include complimentary use. A current fee schedule is available to interested persons from the office of vice-president for ((auxiliary services)) operations and facilities.

(2) The college does not wish to compete with private enterprise. Therefore, the college reserves the right to deny applications for facility use when the administration feels a commercial facility should be patronized. At no time will facility use be granted for a noncollege related commercial activity at a rental rate, or upon terms, less than the full and fair rental value of premises used.

Application procedures.

(1) At least seven working days prior to date of intended use of any college facility, an authorized representative of the requesting organization must submit proper and complete written application which may be obtained through the college's office of ((auxiliary services)) operations and facilities. A single application may be sufficient for a series of meetings by an organization unless those meetings vary significantly in some substantive way; if so, separate applications will be required.

(2) Upon approval of the application, an authorized representative of the using organization shall sign the rental agreement. By affixing a signature as representing the using organization, the signatory specifies he or she has authority to enter into agreement on behalf of the organization and if the organization fails to pay the amount due, the signatory becomes responsible for all charges which may include interest payment for overdue accounts as specified on the rental form but not less than one percent per month.

(3) Events requiring expenditures on the part of the college, or where significant areas are blocked out for the renter, a minimum of up to fifty percent advance deposit may be required at the time of application.

(4) The college reserves the right to make pricing changes without prior written notice.

(5) Use of a facility is limited to the facilities specified on the agreement.

(6) The priorities for facility use place primary emphasis on regular college events and activities. The vice-president for ((auxiliary services)) operations and facilities or designee reserve the right to cancel any permit and refund any payments for use of college facilities and equipment when they deem such action advisable and in the college's best interests.

(7) In the event of a cancellation of a facility use permit by the applicant, that organization is liable for all college costs and expenses in preparing the facility for its use.

(8) Any admission charge is to be specified and approved by the college.

(9) Organizations using Clover Park Technical College's facilities shall conduct all activities in accordance with applicable local, state, and federal laws including all rules adopted by the Clover Park Technical College board of trustees.
