General Reservation Policies


City of Hutchins facilities are operated by the City of Hutchins, Texas, for the benefit of the general public. Permission for private use of City facilities is a privilege granted by the City of Hutchins. Because City facilities have been assembled, maintained and operated for the general public, it is necessary that certain rules and regulations be established to protect its best interest.



In consideration of the City of Hutchins, Texas, allowing me to rent room(s) in City facilities, I/we voluntarily assume all risk of loss, damage, or injury and agree to fully indemnify, release and hold harmless the City of Hutchins, Texas, and its officials, employees, and/or agents, jointly and/or severally, from every claim because of loss, damage, or injury of any kind because of such activity, resulting from the intentional or negligent act or omission of the undersigned, or any of the undersigned’s officers, agents, representatives, partners, shareholders, employees, contractors, invitees, or guests, regardless of whether such loss, damage, or injury is caused by the negligence of the City of Hutchins, its officers, employees, agents, and/or contractors.

Therefore, the following UNDERSTANDING must be agreed upon before permission to use the facility is granted.
