St. Albert raises fees for recreation and permits

A few costs are going up in St. Albert next year.

In a meeting earlier this month, city council passed the first reading of an updated Master Rates Bylaw, which sees several fees going up for 2024.

These increases include a $7 hike to the building permit application fee, and another $7 increase for demolition for demolition permits.

Fountain Park Pool memberships will also be going up, with a $15 raise for annual memberships, and a $50 increase for family memberships. The same will be happening at Servus Place, but at a $25 raise for an adult membership, and a whopping $140 raise for family memberships.

This rise in costs will even be seen at the cemetery, with the cost of a standard adult burial plot to go up by $50, and child plot going up by $20.

Those looking to rent the local theatre will also see a higher price tag, as renting for a performance will cost $75 more, and $100 more for touring acts.

Council says that these increases are due to inflation and rising costs for operation.

The extra $231,000 this will bring to the community will go towards operational costs of city facilities and programming.
