The Milton City Council has approved a schedule of updated rental fees and other charges for playing fields, community rooms and other facilities of the Parks and Recreation Department.

Last updated two years ago, the new fee schedule now includes rates for Community Place ($50 per hour plus a $200 refundable security deposit for Milton residents) and the Deerfield Court Room ($50 and $100, respectively).

The conference room at Bell Memorial Park has been deleted as a rentable facility, according to a memo from Parks and Recreation Director Jim Cregge to the council. Non-residents pay 50 percent more. There is no longer a 20 percent additional fee for rental to a Milton-based business.

“Fees, security deposits and minimal rental periods have been altered to adjust to market pricing and citizen feedback,” Cregge said. “Also included is the ability to rent out field space at schools where we have IGA (intergovernmental) agreements in place.”
