PENDLETON, Oregon – The Pendleton City Council will hear a proposal from the Parks and Recreation Department to raise its fees at its regular meeting tonight at 7 p.m. Under the proposal, individual general admission would go up 50 cents. There would be a $5 increase for an individual season pass, and family passes would be $20 more.
Parks and Rec officials say it’s important to keep pace with rising costs. Under the fee proposal, there would be a new pass established for individual caregivers who are overseeing swimmers, no matter what their age. There are also special passes for senior citizens.
The council will discuss filling the seat left vacant by the late John Brenne and could take action. The person selected will serve for the remainder of 2018. The winner of the May 15 election for Ward 1 will be sworn in at the first council meeting of 2019. The council will also consider naming its annex room in Brenne’s honor.
The council will also consider awarding a bid for the Northeast Ellis Place water line project and hear updates from the Airport Commission and Enterprise Zone director Steve Chrisman.
