User Fees Going Up In Huntsville
User fees for programs and services that the town offers to residents and visitors are due to increase starting January 2022 at a rate of 3.1%.
When asked by Councillor Dan Armour asked if user groups are returning to the Summit Centre, Director of Community Services, Simone Babineau replied “we've seen a lot of our user groups coming back. Our track is open, we have two arenas running, our pool is open, swimming lessons have started. Our numbers are great and people are happy to be here.”
Included in the 3.1% increase are items such as: rentals and/or visits and use of the Algonquin Theatre, Huntsville Civic Center and Partners Hall, the Muskoka Heritage Place, Canada Summit Center and Active Living Center, rentals of Community Halls, Jack Bionda Arena and Don Lough Arena, Centennial Pool, McCulley Robertson Sports Complex and Conroy Park Artificial Turf Field, as well as parks and other areas such as parking lots.
As an example, Leisure Skating and Swim fees will increase to $3.32 per child and $5.88 per adult, with Family Passes costing $11.02.
