Parks & Rec fee increases weighed by supervisors

Citizen Staff Writer



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

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
