The parks and recreation committee examined a status report Monday night.
The Upper St. Clair Parks and Recreation Committee decided not to recommend a rate increase for Community and Recreation Center members on Monday night. "We can hold off for another year," said Matthew Serakowski, township manager. Commissioners in December approved a budget that planned for a 2.5 percent rate increase, according to Commissioner Daniel Paoly. Serakowski told him the increase is not needed. The board of commissioners are expected to take a final vote on no rate increases at their March 4 meeting.
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.
