Starting this week, fee increases will be in place at the Scott Safety Centre and for use of sportsfield facilities in Whitecourt, in keeping with a two-year increase pattern.
Fees are increasing by four percent, which started Monday, September 10th, as they do every two years when the Community Services Board reviews them to keep them in line with other municipalities rates.
Mayor Maryann Chichak on the reasons for the fees increasing.
The rates for using the arena and sportsfields in Whitecourt are still on average less than surrounding municipalities.
The Allan and Jean Millar Centre increased their rates by four percent on Monday as well.
