RECREATION COMMITTEE

Chair Report

Commissioner Crout reminded the Board that the Salute to Ridge Kids event was Saturday and encouraged everyone to attend.  Commissioner Crout also brought up the proposed RAH fee structure that was prepared by Supervisor Zalewski and given to the Board for review.  The first question was, Should there be a standard percentage of increase for non-resident participation across the board or a varied percentage based on the type of program?  The second question was, Should the non-residents be restricted from the program or should higher fees be imposed?  Commissioner Conrad said that with the number of children in the program we should keep the program open to non-residents but raise the rates.  Discussion ensued.  Director King will be working on this with Supervisor Zalweski.
