Amphitheater fees and schedule closer to resolution as May draws near.


The fee schedule appears reasonable, given that an entrepreneur using the amphitheater presumably could charge admission as cover for entering the grounds for musical entertainment. This would be a marked improvement over the Trinkle error, when Bullet Bob zealously guarded the facility from most uses, and the past two years, when the former mayor decreed that all events had to be free of charge, dooming the community to a steady parade of Jimmy Buffett tribute bands. We’ll get there, eventually.

New Albany Board of Public Works and Safety considering amphitheater fees; Administration says it’s ‘close’ to announcing New Albany entertainment schedule, by Daniel Suddeath (News and Tribune)

NEW ALBANY — The New Albany Board of Public Works and Safety has taken under advisement a fee schedule for renting the Riverfront Amphitheater.

Private organizations, businesses or individuals who wish to reserve the city-owned amphitheater will be required to pay a $200 maintenance and clean up fee under the proposal, which was presented to the board Tuesday by Flood Control Director Christopher Gardner.
