Town Coun­cil voted on Mon­day to in­crease a num­ber of user ser­vice fees.

There will be a 2% in­crease to Re­cre­ation Ac­cess and Fa­cil­ity Rental Fees.

Our re­cre­ation fa­cil­i­ties of­fer a va­ri­ety of fun sport­ing op­tions for the pub­lic and ser­vice fees are an un­for­tu­nate ne­ces­sity to main­tain the high qual­ity of the fa­cil­i­ties”.

These in­clude the Aquaplex and BCF ad­mis­sion & mem­ber­ship fees: ice and ball di­a­mond rentals as well as con­fer- ence/room rentals.

For ex­am­ple, an adult mul­ti­fa­cil­ity mem­ber­ship will in­crease from $634.75 a year to $646.50: an in­crease of $1.06 per month.

“Our re­cre­ation fa­cil­i­ties of­fer a va­ri­ety of fun sport­ing op­tions for the pub­lic and ser­vice fees are an un­for­tu­nate ne­ces­sity to main­tain the high qual­ity of the fa­cil­i­ties,” ex­plained Paul Sal­va­tore Di­rec­tor of Com­mu­nity Ser­vices. “A va­ri­ety of Toonie ac­tiv­i­ties and the Re­cre­ation Fee As­sis­tance Pro­gram are just some of the ways we are work­ing to en­sure that the fa­cil­i­ties are ac­ces­si­ble to as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble, re­gard­less of their fi­nan­cial abil­i­ties.”

Coun­cil also voted for a 2 per cent in­crease to ceme­tery fees.

The new fees for the BCF, Aquaplex and the ceme­tery will come into ef­fect on Thursday, Fe­bru­ary 1. Ice and ball di­a­mond fees will be­gin at the be­gin­ning of their re­spec­tive sea­sons.
