Borrowing Agreement

CITY OF BONDURANT

EQUIPMENT BORROWING POLICY

JUNE 20, 2016

Purpose & Intent

The City of Bondurant is supportive of special event activities conducted by Bondurant residents or businesses.  The City realizes that equipment not normally owned by residents or businesses could be helpful in conducting events.  In an effort to assist with providing a safe and popular event, the City will allow use of some City equipment to Bondurant residents or businesses.

Policy

Persons requesting to borrow or rent City equipment must submit a City Special Events Application at least two weeks prior to the event. The City expects persons borrowing or renting City equipment to exercise care in using the equipment and return the equipment in the same condition as when it was taken out. Borrowers will be charged for work needed to clean or repair dirty or damaged equipment.

Street Barricades - The City will provide street barricades to residents conducting block parties or to not-for-profit groups such as the Chamber of Commerce holding events which are open to the public.  There is no charge for borrowing the barricades, but a $50 deposit is required.  The deposit must be paid and the Barricade Borrowing Agreement must be turned in before the barricades are considered to be reserved.  The City will deliver and pick up the barricades at the location designated by the borrower.  The deposit will be returned if the barricades are not damaged or dirty when picked up by the City.  Any cleaning or repair costs will be deducted from the deposit.  If the cleaning or repair costs exceed $50 the borrower will be billed for the additional cost.  Barricades will not be provided to businesses conducting events sponsored by the business.  Businesses are responsible for providing their own barricades. The City has a limited number of street barricades and cannot guarantee that barricades will be available on the requested date(s).  The City may be using the barricades for City purposes, or someone else may have already reserved the available supply.

Electrical Distribution Box (Turtle) -  The City will rent its electrical distribution box also known as the "turtle" to any Bondurant business or resident.  Rental cost is $100 per event for any business renting the turtle.  Not-for-profit groups will not be charged a rental fee.   With the exception of Summerfest, an event must not exceed a 24 hour period.  A $500 deposit is required from any group or person and the Electrical Distribution Box Borrowing Agreement must be completed before the turtle can be used.  The deposit will be returned if the turtle is not damaged or dirty when it is returned to the City.   Any cleaning or repair costs will be deducted from the deposit.  If the cleaning or repair costs exceed $500 the borrower will be billed for the additional cost, up to the full cost of replacing the turtle.  Estimated replacement cost is $2,500.

Live Traps-  The City will rent its live traps to any Bondurant resident.  No rental fee. The Live Trap Borrowing Agreement must be completed before the trap can be deliver. Traps must be returned undamaged or clean when it is returned to the City.   Any cleaning or repair costs will be billed to the borrower.  If the cleaning or repair costs exceed $20 the borrower will be billed for the additional cost, up to the full cost of replacing the turtle.  Estimated replacement cost is $50.

The City does not allow borrowing or private use of any City tools or equipment except those stated in this policy.
