Parks and Recreation Committee to Discuss C&RC Rates Monday

The committee will decide whether to recommend a rate increase.

The parks and recreation committee is scheduled meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18 in the commissioners' meeting room at the municipal building.

The committee is scheduled to discuss a possible rate increase for Community and Recreation Center members. Each year the committee makes a recommendation to the board of commissioners on whether they think rates should be increased or not.

July 2011 was the last time rates increased. Adult and family rates increased by five percent and youth rates nearly doubled. Senior rates remained the same. There was no rate increase in 2012.

The committee meeting is a public meeting.

I would think that a well run organization review their structures every year. I don't know about you or your purchases but the price for any apple product goes up almost yearly despite record earnings. Why would the USC Rec Center be any different?

Bud, Isn't that would any good business would do? Review their structures. My apple products go up in price or stay the same regardless of record profits.

I am at the USC Rec Center almost 5 days a week and the service/facilities destroy my experiences at both the JCC and the Y(as if there is even any comparison). I paid more at those places for less, much less. We are really lucky to have this and I am starting to think we are underappreciating what we get.

This is a community run organization that is for the community. As a community organization (I Do not know their charter or their by-laws) but I would expect if their is a surplus that it be returned to the community. Comparing this to Apple; Shareholders expect a return for their investment. As a TAXPAYER (Owner) I expect the same; lower my membership fee or send me a tax rebate! You really do not know what your talking about do you USCMOM!
