Recreation and Parks User Fees
Council approved the Recreation and Parks User Fees Policy that reflects a 5% increase this year as was approved in the budget and then a 2.5% increase for each of the following 2 years. A streamlined process will mean that the purchasing decision for the customer will be considerably easier allowing them to access the full range of services. The new fees will be effective September 1, 2015.
Community Asset Inventory
