Town eyes rais­ing gen­eral skate fees at North­town Cen­ter

The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Skaters could pay more next sea­son to glide and twirl around the ice at the North­town Cen­ter at Amherst.

The Amherst Town Board to­day could vote to raise the gen­eral skate fee for the fa­cil­ity at 1615 Amherst Manor Drive for the first time since 2005, ac­cord­ing to a res­o­lu­tion on the board agenda.

The rates would rise by 67 per­cent, from $3 to $5, for res­i­dents with a Town of Amherst ID card and by 33 per­cent, from $6 to $8, for non-res­i­dents. The cost of rent­ing skates also would rise from $3 to $5.

The rate in­creases would bring in an es­ti­mated $66,260 in new rev­enue for the town’s Youth and Re­cre­ation Depart­ment.

If ap­proved, the new rate sched­ule would take ef­fect Sept. 1.
