Knife River Recreation Council, Inc.
It is the policy of the Knife River Recreation Council, Inc. (KRRC) that the Knife River Recreation Building, located at 199 Alger Smith Road, be used for the following purposes.
1. Primary usage
The Recreation Building provides a place where members/community residents can gather for recreational activities on a year-round basis. All events sponsored by the KRRC are open to the public. KRRC events (meetings, fundraisers, programs, etc.) have first priority for use of the building
2. Special use categories
Private events. Members $40 Non-Members $70.
The KRRC is supported in part by annual membership fees. A benefit of membership is use of the Recreation Building at a reduced member rate. This member benefit is available to members currently paid for the calendar year on a space-available basis and bookings must be made in advance through the designated KRRC building scheduler. Family membership is defined as a nuclear family living at the same address. A damage deposit is required and renters must leave the facility as described in the Conditions section on page two of this document and abide by the posted rules. A person/organization that is not a current member may choose to pay a membership fee and then qualify for the member rental rate. Memberships are paid each calendar year and are not pro-rated into the next calendar year. New members would then qualify for the member rate if they chose to rent again during the current calendar year.
Community organizations meetings. No Charge.
The KRRC encourages use of this facility by community organizations that provide information or service to the community, especially those that concern recreational interests and activities in the Knife River area. Use of the building is on a space available basis and must be approved in advance by the KRRC Board of Directors or designee.

Other organizations meetings and/or events. $60 per Scheduled Day.
