Discussing NSSRC Non-Resident Fees & Alternatives

Listen to this article

Glad we are all talking about this change made in our budget last week. Meaningful funding agreements from our neighbouring municipalities is really the best outcome. That money will come from their taxpayers so costs increase one way or another, but it will see us all partnered again like 20 yrs ago when the NSSRC was built. Listen below:

  1. Thanks Bill for putting the csae so clearly!

    One point that is also key is that we are only asking the non-residents to pay per family if and only if they are using the facility. Whereas the residents of Midland are paying even if they do not use the facility.

    Until we get neighbouring communities back on board with sharing the costs, we will see continued attacks against this new policy as there will be some people excluded.

    • Hello, In the beginning we all worked to-gether, all four of us, what we missed was a reserve fund to handle old age problems or some new or better equipment. This is what we need, not putting the burden on parents that have children in some kind of SPORT. It does not matter what sports we offer, just a fund for old age problems, lets not make our
      decisions at the cost of our future young children, OK come on Midland, Tay, Tiny and Penetang lets make this work.
