County weighs Parks & Rec fee increases

Fee increases for programs and athletic field use under the Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Department will be discussed by the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

The increases are needed to help offset anticipated budget problems in the 2009-10 fiscal year, county officials say.

A wide range of programs and activities would be affected by the proposed increases, some of which could hit 20 percent over existing fees charged by the county department.

Included are:

• Athletic field and basketball court use

• Ramada and room rentals

• Equestrian facilities

• Shooting range

• Campground sites

• Art and leisure classes

• Rillito Race Track rental and horse stall fees

• Youth programs

• Environmental education

• Aquatics programs

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
