Increases for shelter and picnic sites were not only for residents but for non-residents as well. In fact, resident fees increased $5 a day for city tax payers and approximately $15 for non-tax paying users. Also included in the increases are pool passes, Camp Centennial weekly rates, all league rates for each non-resident player and the rent at the Young Amphitheatre.
There were some long discussions on the rate increases and it was determined that there should be a bigger disparity between those who pay city taxes and those who don’t but use the City parks.
