What is your alcohol policy?
Is security required for my event?
Security is required for a minimum of 4 hours when alcohol will be served and must be staffed by off-duty Mineola Police officers. The number of officers required is determined by the size of the event. MCC management reserves the right to require security for other social events and/or large attendance events. Mineola Civic Center will arrange for security through the Mineola Police Department. Leasee is responsible for the cost of security officers and must be paid prior to the event according to the contract. Security must remain in place until the end of the event.
For the safety of our guests’, security is managed by video surveillance in strategic areas of the park and daily patrol by Mineola Police Department.
