The Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District is proposing to update its fee schedule for various programs, events and services, and is seeking input from the public at its Board of Trustees meeting on Dec. 18.

"The last time we updated our fee ranges was in 2008," said District Director Rena Jordan. "What we wanted to do was to be inclusive of everything that we charge fees for that we didn’t have a schedule for so we could have one document for everybody to look at for fees for all activities."

Jordan said this new fee schedule is a "clean-up act." She added that staff has recommended to the Board to expand fee ranges and that fees are not actually being changed. Rather, the District is creating approved minimums and maximums for fees. Some proposed fees in the schedule Jordan said have never been published.

Some fee range changes that are being proposed include:

  • Youth recreation leagues (per player) — Current range: $30 (minimum)-$90 (maximum); proposed range: $40-$150
  • Field rental for non-profit (special event, per hour) Current range: $100-$300; proposed range: $50-$400
  • Single passes (adult, 12-month) Current range: $240-$360; proposed range: $336-$425

    Once the entire Fieldhouse remodel is completed, Jordan said, the District will better able to see what the total costs are, but she said fees have not been raised in three years.

    "Fees have always been adopted in a minimum/maximum range and we change the rate based on the current year’s budget," Jordan said. "We’re making sure we’re differentiating between stakeholders, non-profits and for-profit entities using public facilities."

    Another change with this proposed fee schedule is that military service members will receive the same discounted rates as youth ages 4-17 and seniors ages 60 and over.

    "We don’t know if fees will change yet. The Board wanted to see the whole range and then determine phasing based on plans that manager put together," Jordan said. "We won’t raise Fieldhouse fees before we finish everything."

    Basin Recreation will be taking public comment on the proposed revisions to the District fee structure at 6:10 p.m. as part of its Board meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 5715 Trailside Drive. For more information, visit basinrecreation.org or call the Administrative Office at 435-649-1564.
