City to let Chamber use Civic Center for free

A request to use McMinnville Civic Center free of charge for an upcoming event has at least one city official questioning the board’s willingness to give freebies.“I don’t think we need to start out this year by letting people use it free of charge,” said Alderman Jimmy Bonner during Tuesday night’s Parks and Recreation Committee meeting. “At least let them pay something. Then people won’t come up here saying ‘You let so and so use it free of charge, so let us use it free of charge.’”Prompting the statement was a request from Warren County Chamber of Commerce president Mandy Eller, who asked to use the Civic Center at no charge for the Chamber’s annual banquet Jan. 26.
