19. BBQ POLICY
The Briar Hill Community Centre (BHCC) has two Barbeques (BBQs) that are chained, locked and hooked up to gas lines. Both are located on the Patio and may be rented by residents. residents should do a trial walk-through and read all conditions in Rental Agreement, to know where everything is located and be prepared for the event.
The two BBQs may be rented by residents at the following rates:
The smaller unit $15.00 per event
The larger unit $30.00 per event
The BBQ Rental Agreement that residents sign has the following conditions:
a. The Renter/User understands and agrees that they use the BBQ(s) at their own
risk and are responsible for any damage caused to the BBQ(s).
b. BBQ(s) must be operated in a safe manner and be left clean for the next resident.
If a BBQ is left dirty, the resident who rented it may be asked come and clean it or
to cover any cost for cleaning and may be refused the right to rent the BBQ(s) in
future. The resident must bring own tools for cooking and for cleaning.
c. If a BBQ is broken or needs attention, report the concern immediately to the
BHCC office. If office is not open, as soon as possible, send an email or leave a
voicemail for the Office Staff so they can respond appropriately before the next
d. The larger BBQ only may be moved around the building to outside the kitchen
area to the Upper Patio. There is a hook-up for the larger BBQ, outside door on
the right-hand side of the kitchen door (as you stand outside facing the kitchen
door). The double doors to the Great Room can be opened, if an event requiring
the Large BBQ is booked in the Great Room.
i. After moving the BBQ around the building to the Upper Patio by the kitchen
and connecting it to the gas connection, resident must use the BHCC door
code, come in through the main doors, then enter the kitchen and on the left-
hand side of the kitchen back door, behind the convection oven, is the gas
ON/OFF switch. This must be turned on to get gas to the BBQ. (For Safety
and Security purposes it is imperative that to REMEMBER TO TURN OFF
THE GAS CONNECTION IN THE KITCHEN immediately after BBQ use). You
can either bring in the cooked food through the Kitchen door to distribute from
the Kitchen or unlock the Great Room double-doors to the outside (no key
required). (For Safety and Security purposes it is imperative that you ENSURE
GREAT ROOM/KITCHEN DOORS ARE RE-LOCKED after BBQ use.)
ii. The resident is responsible for ensuring the BBQ is returned to the Lower
Patio level, properly cleaned, reconnected to the gas line, covered and
secured to the chain, immediately following the event.
iii. Gas Line connections for either BBQ MUST be left in the OFF position after
each use (whether used on the Upper or Lower Patio).
e. A refundable Key Deposit of $10.00 is required for the resident to unlock the
BBQ. The deposit will be returned after the event, upon receipt of the key. The
resident should visit the Office a few days before the event to pay the rental fee
and to pick up the key to unlock the chains on the BBQ(s). The RESIDENT MUST
OBTAIN BBQ(s) KEY DURING OFFICE HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT and
return it during office hours as soon as possible after the event, as someone else
will need it.
Each month the Office will send a booking reservation report for BBQ requests to the President and the Maintenance Director. They (or designate) will ensure that the BBQ(s) have been properly cleaned and that gas lines have been turned off after each event.
