The Drip­ping Springs City Coun­cil passed a new rule dur­ing their meet­ing on Tues­day that es­tab­lishes guide­lines for fit­ness train­ers us­ing city parks.

The change, which re­quires train­ers to reg­is­ter with the city, is sim­i­lar to ones made by Le­an­der and Austin in the past year. As part of the change there will be a new $10-per-ses­sion monthly fee for train­ers us­ing city parks for boot camps and train­ing ses­sions. Coun­cil mem­ber John Kroll voted against the or­di­nance.

City Ad­min­is­tra­tor Michelle Fis­cher said city of­fi­cials wanted to have a list of per­sonal train­ers do­ing busi­ness in city parks for li­a­bil­ity rea­sons. The or­di­nance also would al­low city of­fi­cials to be able to make sure parks aren’t dam­aged or overused. The change likely would go into ef­fect by early Jan­uary, Fis­cher said.
