City facility fee increases posed for Alberni residents

The Parks and Recreation youth admission rate has been eliminated, a report from department director Scott Kenny noted.

The age range for children’s rates has been changed to 13 to 18 and the youth rate eliminated.

The move is being made in an effort to “increase youth participation in city programs,” Kenny noted.

The fee increase is one of several Parks and Recreation is requesting at city council’s Tuesday meeting.

If the request is granted residents will be paying more as of July 1.

Residents will see fee increases in other categories as well.

General admission rates for children will go from $4.50 to $4.75.

Seniors will see an increase from $5.50 to $5.75 in their general admissions.

Adult general admission rates will increase from $8 to $8.25.

And the Multiplex prime youth rate will rise from $82.40 to $84.

City discount rates are set to stay at 2010 levels.

The costs are either on par with, or just below that of other Island city facilities, Kenny’s report showed.
