Meeting Date: 02/21/2019  

SUBJECT MATTER:
PUBLIC HEARING: Convene and conduct a Public Hearing regarding proposed amendments to Township Order No. 020-09 regarding Pool Fees; 
FISCAL IMPACT:
Additional revenue derived from increased pool rental fees for Bear Branch Pool  projected to raise $5,000 per year.  Revenue generated by the rental of pool water inflatables is unknown as the demand and market is untested; but expected to be nominal.
BACKGROUND:
Per Township Order 019-09 (l)(iv); “It shall be the responsibility of the President to submit to the Board of Directors, from time to time as appropriate, revisions to the schedule of park users fees”.  On January 16, 2019, the Board of Directors received a recommendation to consider amending Township Order 020-09 relative to the Pool Rental Fee for Bear Branch Pool.

Pool Fees and Staffing Expenses
Pool fees were most recently adjusted in 2008, coinciding with the opening of the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center. Pool fees are recommended to remain unchanged again for the 2019 season, with the following two exceptions:
  1. The pool rental fee at Bear Branch Pool. With the renovation and added amenities the Township is now providing additional lifeguards to staff the facility (6 versus 4) for both public use and after hours’ events; as such the recommendation is to increase the rental rate from $275 to $350 per 2-hours for residents and $500 per 2-hours for non-residents. This change places it in line with similarly-staffed facility rentals at Cranebrook, Forestgate, and Wendtwoods – or “Tier 2”.
  2. New rental fee for an optional pool rental add-on of a Key Log or inflatable obstacle course plus appropriate additional staff; subject to availability; $100 per 2-hours for residents and $120 for non-residents, and $50 per each additional hour.
Based on the proposed fee schedule, proper management of the 2019 Aquatics Budget is expected to result in a 50% cost recovery.  A public hearing is required to amend Township Orders related to the fees.
