The Evergreen Park and Recreation District is in a position to set aside money for the future as well as invest a projected $581,000 in physical improvements and surveys under the proposed $6.4 million budget for 2009.
The new budget also includes an average 7 percent increase in fees for programs and classes.
Daily admission rates for Wulf and Buchanan rec centers will increase 50 cents. Short- and long-term membership passes will increase an average of $9, a 10 percent boost.
Fee increases will generate about $183,000, including $84,000 from fee increases for facility memberships and admissions and $99,000 from fee increases for programs and classes.
