Council approves proposed fees for aquatic center

mowen@ledger-enquirer.comJune 18, 2013 

Columbus Council approved a proposed fee schedule today for the new Columbus Aquatic Center with two amendments.

A proposed discount for current city employees was removed from the proposal, but with the understanding that council would revisit the issue later. Another amendment grants resident status to active-duty military, even if they live outside Muscogee County.

Fees that council approved are:

For age 11 and under, $2; age 12-17, $3, adults 18-54, $5; age 55 and over, $3. Those fees are for Muscogee County residents. Non-resident fees are double those.

According to the parks and recreation website, fees at the other public pools are:

For age 11 and under, $1; age 12-17, $2; adults 18-54, $3; age 55 and over, $2. Again, non-resident fees are double those.

Membership fees for the Aquatic Center are considerably higher than the other pools, but the outdoor pools are open only from June 5 to Aug. 4, while the indoor facility is open year-round, Worsley said.

Membership fees at the Aquatic Center would be:

Single resident, $200; non-resident, $250

Senior resident, $180; non-resident, $225

Family resident, $300, non-resident, $350

Season passes at the outdoor pools cost:

One resident, $30, non- resident, $45

Two residents, $55, non- resident, $75

Three residents, $75, non-resident $95

Four residents, $90, non-residents, $115

Five residents, $105, non-residents, $120

City regulations require that one guardian attend for every three children.
