No break for nonprofits in city's meeting room policy


The changes made by the Savage City Council to its meeting room reservation and use policy during its work session Nov. 14 weren’t exactly what 8-year-old Shrey Pothini was hoping for.

The City Council agreed to drop the rental fee for the Marion/Marietta room at City Hall, which has a capacity for 80-100 people, from $75 to $25 for a four-hour period. However, there will no longer be a fee waiver for nonprofit groups or the Savage Chamber of Commerce. The changes will go into effect Jan. 1, 2011.
