There’s an official pay structure now in place for those wanting to use Covington’s Legion Field park for gatherings, including events, weddings and family reunions.

For the pavilion and field, including access to restrooms, the cost will be $55 for residents for a half day, $95 for a full day and $75 for a half day and $135 for a full day.

For the future concert space, including access to the pavilion and restrooms, the cost will be $90 an hour for residents and $135 an hour for non-residents.

For the fair building, including access to the total park, pavilion, field and amphitheater, the cost will be $300 for non-profit groups and $500 for other residents, and $450 for non-profit groups and $750 for other non-residents.

A refundable deposit for all is $100 for pavilion and field, $175 for the amphitheater and $200 for the fair building.

If alcohol is served then there will be a $50 permit fee for the caterer, which must be present for alcohol.

Operation hours of the park will be 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The council also said Monday, it would hold a public work session for those in the community wanting to find out more or ask questions about Legion Field. The date of the work session is still in the works.
