Changes to booking fees for sports fields, ball diamonds

 

HRM Media Release
 
(Tuesday, January 11, 2011) – New fees for use of sports fields and
ball diamonds in HRM will help the municipality cover the costs of
maintaining fields to a sustainable standard and continue to provide
good services to the people who use them.
 
Council approved a new schedule of fees this evening, which will see
rates rise in the 2011 playing season by $10 per hour for use by adult
teams. A $5 per hour increase for minor sports booking fees will be
phased in over two years in recognition of HRM’s commitment to youth
access to recreation opportunities.
 
HRM currently spends $2.5 million on sports field maintenance but
recovered just $196,365 in revenues from user fees last year. With the
changes, total fees for fields will increase to $468,703 by year two.
The last fee increase was in 1999. Rates differ by field classification
and are as follows:
 
AA class
from $10/hour for Adult use to $20/hour for Adult use
from $5/hour for Minor use to $10/hour for Minor use (two-year
phase-in)
 
A class
from $9/hour for Adult use to $19/hour for Adult use
from $4.50/hour for Minor use to $9.50/hour for Minor use (two-year
phase-in)
 
B class
from $8/hour for Adult use to $18/hour for Adult use
from $4/hour for Minor use to $9/hour for Minor use (two-year
phase-in)
 
C class
from $7/hour for Adult use to $17/hour for Adult use
from $3.50/hour for Minor use to $8.50/hour for Minor use (two-year
phase-in)
 
D class
from $0/hour for Adult use to $10/hour for Adult use
from $0/hour for Minor use to $5/hour for Minor use (two-year
