A. Event Rental Fees and Costs. The written event agreement will designate the authorized museum space and time for the approved use and shall specify applicable costs and fees. The event fees include:
1. a base service charge, which is established based on the agency's cost of standard security, custodial, utilities, and administrative support required to service previous functions of a similar size and type;
2. a donation, which is a gift to a designated fund in the Louisiana Museum Foundation or another OSM-designated nonprofit organization whose primary purpose is to support the mission of the OSM, which fund is designated for OSM use for endowment, education, exhibits, acquisition, publications, conservation and building function support purposes;
3. additional charges based on the nature of the requested use and/or additional requirements as agreed upon. Such additional charges will be included in the written event agreement and may relate to fees and/or required donations;
4. additional charges for use that requires the closing of any portion of the museum prior to its normal closing time in the amount of $250 per hour plus applicable fees and donation for the period closed during public hours;
5. additional charges imposed if, after the completion of the event, actual use exceeded the authorized use; e.g., the actual number of persons in attendance exceeded the planned number or the time and space used were greater than planned;
6. additional charges imposed if, after the completion of the event, there are any repairs necessary to the museum building, grounds, collections, property, or exhibitions that are the result of the use;
7. additional charges will be in addition to all other charges and fees and will be payable by the host to the OSM immediately upon notification.
B. A deposit of not less than 50 percent of the total indicated in the written agreement will be paid by the host to the OSM at least 30 days prior to the date of the use. The balance and any additional charges required will be payable upon billing by the OSM, at the time of or following the use.
