Timing of recreation fees questioned

Greater Vernon parks and recreation fees climbed before they were even official.

Juliette Cunningham, a Regional District of North Okanagan director, is questioning the approval process.

“We ratified it (Wednesday) and the new fees were already mentioned in the leisure guide,” she said.

While the RDNO board hadn’t approved the fees yet, staff says they had been endorsed by the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee and the publishing deadline for the guide required the new figures.

Fees for 2012/13 are increasing 2.37 per cent.
