Clay’s Cosby Lake now available for rentals
By Lee Weyhrich
The Clay City Council on Monday approved a rental contract for events at Cosby Lake.
City Manager Ronnie Dixon said two requests for rentals have already been made — a wedding and a birthday party.
The contract was derived from the rental agreement in use at the Clay Senior Activity Center and the Clay Community Center. The cost for having an event at Cosby Lake is $150 for two hours and $50 for each additional hour. A $150 security deposit is required and will be refunded after inspection following the event. Cosby Lake Park is available to rent at any time it isn’t being used for city business.
The lake hasn’t been rented out in recent years.
“We did find out that several years ago there already was a rental agreement at Cosby Lake,” Dixon said.
Although there was already a rental agreement on the books, the council wished to make the language of the agreement more consistent with other city contracts. Councilwoman Becky Johnson asked that additional parking at the site be looked into once again.
