ORDINANCE: Park Facilities Rental Fees

Rental fees for park facilities, including athletic fields and park shelters have not been updated in over five years. Looking at comparative facilities and rentals, it is clear that the City of Ferndale has some room to be more competitive while still offering facilities at an affordable rate. This increase will help cover staff time involved in managing rentals and maintaining city facilities. Currently there are several variables used in calculating rental fees, such as Public Works call out fees, fees for turning lights on/off, and different rates for tournaments and practices. The proposed changes streamline the charges into one flat rate fee to eliminate the confusion in calculating the rental fee.

A charge for non-athletic use of the fields has been added, as well as a key rental fee to allow renters to avoid additional call out fees for closing facilities.

Councilmember Watson moved, and Councilmember Kennedy seconded, to approve the agenda bill. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.
