AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           March 22, 2010

 

From:                          Bruce Ericson, Director of Parks & Recreation

 

Subject:                      Resolution amending recreation activity program rates and changing out-of-area service fees from non-utility to non-residents

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends amending recreation activity program rates and out-of-area service fees from non-utility to non-residents used in the daily operation of recreation activities.

 

Analysis:

On January 28, 2008, the City Commission approved a resolution authorizing rate changes for various recreation activity fees to offset expenses for equipment and other related expenditures.  In an effort to continue providing quality service and equipment to participants in our programs, staff recommends approval of the rate changes provided in the attached document listed as “Exhibit A” to assist with the purchase of quality equipment and professional instructors with reasonable activity rates. 

 

Currently, the policy for participants who pay out of area service fees have been non-utility users, staff recommends changing the policy from non-utility users to non-residents which will expand the number of out of area users and generate additional revenue to offset expenses for recreation activity programs.

 

Options:

1.  Approve Resolution amending rate changes provided in the attached document listed as Exhibit

     A” or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

These rate changes were presented and discussed during the Recreation budget workshop Thursday, July 28, 2009 for the current fiscal year budget. Please note that youth soccer fees have been adjusted to coincide with our other youth sports program fees.  Expenditures as well as revenues are identified annually in the individual program (project) budgets.
