Rental Insurance Policy


                                                                                                March 2014

The Town of Huntsville has a Municipal Facility Rental/Property Users Insurance Policy which sets out guidelines and expectations to renters with respect to the use of recreational facilities and properties owned by the municipality.

The responsibility for a safe, well-managed facility rental and/or event is the responsibility of the renter. The role of the municipality is to support the user in their venture.

The policy highlights the following with respect to insurance:

  • No person or entity shall hold, organize or sponsor any event or activity on Town property or other public facilities unless the municipality has been provided with necessary insurance coverage for such event or activity
  • Users that do carry insurance must provide a Certificate of Insurance with a five million ($5 million) liability coverage naming the Corporation of The Town of Huntsville as an additional insured.
  • Users who do not carry insurance coverage can purchase through a program offered by the Town of Huntsville that is available by our Insurance Company as part of the Facility User Rating Guide Prices vary per event.
  • All renters are responsible for any insurance premiums associated with their event including tax and administration fees. Premiums will vary depending on the event. In the event of any claims the renter shall have the sole responsibility and obligation to pay the insurance deductible.

Should you have any questions with respect to this policy and your insurance requirements please contact us directly.
