Council Agrees To Phase In Feild Fees
City council has agreed to phase-in higher sports feild fees over two years by a vote of 27-9.
That means the city would charge between $2 and $6 per hour next year, depending on the quality of the field.
The old plan wanted to put those fees between $5.31 and $10.62 an hour.
It's all in an effort to raise $1.5 million in order for the Parks and Recreation department meet budget targets.
The city vows to improve the conditions of sports fields in the city as well as develop a system to classify the feild. It will also develop a new policy for cancellations due to rain.
