The changes include an increase to $95 for non-profit youth organizations and non-prime, prime-time fee being set at $160, public skating being free and multi-use sport court set at $55 per hour.
The fee structure reflects future assisitance for arena repairs.
Prime-time hours would be from 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday to Friday and Sundays (8.a.m.- 10 p.m.).
Non-prime time would be Monday to Friday before 4 p.m. and after 10 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays before 8 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
A $15 facility booking cancellation fee, the removal of the two-hour minimum on ball diamond rentals was removed and changes to the swimming and lifeguarding programming were added to the bylaw.
Prior to second reading being passed ,council had discussed an inquiry about a wind farm company looking to book five to six campsites for an extended period of time from March to November at a reduced rate.
The finalized rate would be subjected to the division manager’s discretion.
Redcliff chief administrative officer Phyllis Forsyth says in discussions with her directors and managers that this specific request would be between $750 to $1000 a month per unit.
Negotiations are ongoing.
