Click here to make a payment on an invoice from the Lorain County Transportation & Community Center.
A security deposit is due at the time of booking an event - $500 for Rooms 103 & 104; $100 for Rooms 128, 204 and 206. The deposit is required to secure the User’s date. If the User defaults in the performance of any obligation under the agreement/invoice or violates the policies and procedures, the County may, but shall not be obligated, to apply all or portions of the Security Deposit on account to the User’s obligations. If the security deposit isn’t enough to cover the damage the User is responsible for the difference. Any balance of the deposit remaining upon termination of the agreement and full performance of the User’s obligations shall be returned to the User, without interest.
The remaining balance and a signed agreement/invoice is due no later than 10 days prior to the day of the event. A personal check, business check or money order should be made payable to the Lorain County Treasurer. A $100 service fee will be charged for all checks returned due to insufficient funds.
Users have two (2) options available for food service. For smaller, less formal events, clients may choose items from the House Menu and the final count and selections are due two weeks before the event. The cost will be invoiced to the User by Lorain County. Payment, in full, shall be received 10 days prior to the event. For full-service catering, Clients shall enter into an agreement with LCCC; and payment will be made directly to LCCC.
Alcoholic Beverages/Bartender Service
The User is responsible to comply with all rules, laws and regulations regarding the service of alcoholic beverages. LCCC as the caterer can also take care of all bar details. If the User chooses to provide alcohol themselves, a bartender shall be provided by the County. The bartender will set up, serve and clean the beverage serving area. Users will provide direct payment, in the form of a check or cash, to the bartender at the day of the event. The User will provide all products, later removing the products and trash from the Center at the end of the event.
Events that are held in the evening, on weekends, with 75+ guests and/or have alcoholic beverages served will require the User to pay for two Security Officers ($30.00 per hour). Security is provided by off-duty Sheriff’s deputies. The User will provide direct payment (check or cash) to the Deputies the day of the event.
In 2018 there will be a $5.00 per hour cruiser fee charged.
In the event of a cancellation, the Security Deposit is non-refundable. The exception would be if we were able to rebook the same date.
Parking is provided for rental participants and patrons to the extent that facilities are available. Parking lots are not available for purposes other than their intended use. There are 82 complimentary parking spaces with 118 additional paid parking spaces available. Security cameras are located throughout the parking lot area.
Lorain County is not responsible for damage and/or loss of any merchandise, equipment, clothing or other valuables remaining after an event has ended. Clients assume all responsibility for any violations of City, State and Federal Laws.
