Increased fees proposed for county parks

San Juan County Council will consider a resolution at its Tuesday, November 10, 2015 meeting to adopt a new fee schedule for county parks. If adopted the schedule would go into effect January 1, 2016.

According to a staff report, the Parks & Recreation Commission recommends selective adjustments to the Parks Fee Schedule for 2016 to better match fees with the specific use. The fee is based on the value, cost, management burden and the impact on other park users. The commission compared the county's fees with other jurisdictions in the region.

The increase in is response to increased demand for use of the county parks. The fee does not include the added expense the Parks Department will incur due to providing medical insurance for part-time workers as mandated under the Affordable Care Act.
