To reserve the Atkinson Community Center for your event, a LEASE AGREEMENT must be signed, accompanied by the rent and submitted to the Atkinson City Office. The deposit is due to the city office upon picking up the keys for the building. The deposit will be returned to the lessee upon inspection of the premises after the event. Any cleaning or damage charges will be subtracted from the deposit.      


If liquor is to be served at the event, the lessee must contact Tim Hamik of the Atkinson American Legion Post by calling  402-340-7542 or 402-925-5766 to make arrangements regarding the liquor license for the event. This should be done at least 30 days in advance if possible.

These are stored in the closets and all items must be returned to their respective closet upon the end of the event. No tables, chairs, kitchen utensils or any other equipment may be removed from the community center at any time.


The lessee is responsible for cleaning after the activity is over. Restrooms must be cleaned, floors swept and/or wiped clean, and trash placed in the dumpster behind the building - this includes any trash in the parking lot. There are several people who can be hired to do the cleaning after the event. Check with the city office for names and phone numbers.
