Park Hall has been in a state of off-line since the March 2020 shelter in place orders. It has been a difficult year for many, and for Park Hall, a building that has served the public of Ben Lomond and the San Lorenzo Valley for 97 years, the hall has been mostly quiet.
Currently we have no paid staff nor janitorial service. We have three regular tenets which provide some income: Where the Fir Flies (dog grooming), Mill Street Hairquarters (hair salon), and Mountain Community Theater’s office.
Traditionally the majority of our income is the rental of the large room/performance space, but since March 2020 there has been no use of this space.
What we keep spending on: Gas/Electric/Water Utilities and Insurance. And the biggest regular expenses during the winter is keeping the building warm enough not to damage equipment and the water which services hair salon and dog groomers.
Last night (2021-01-12) we held our monthly Trustee meeting to go over any outstanding issues and review our current financials. We have an open governance policy so our Meeting Minutes and Budget are public, feel free to have a gander 2021 January Agenda & Notes.
We look forward to hosting events and the wonderful theater work coming back to Park Hall this year.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out.
Lyle Troxell, Park Hall Trustee
