The city of Bowling Green said it needs to raise fees for parks and recreation, but the Commission isn't in agreement on what to raise.
So, they moved the vote to next meeting.
"I wanted a better understanding why some fees were selected to be raised and others were not. I just felt like there needed to be a better explanation," said Commissioner Melinda Hill.
The fees vary quite a bit from dealing with golf courses, to renting chairs, to paying for a kickball league, but one commissioner says they don't need to get to involved.
"I don't think that micromanagement is the way to provide leadership. I think sometimes when we're getting into the minutia of whether or not we're providing a t-shirt for a kickball activity that we're getting into micromanagement of the parks and rec department," said Commissioner Brian 'Slim' Nash.
However, others think the raises should be more across the board.
"Give me justification. There are programs that are offered to a lot of the same age groups, so if you're doing it to one group, do it to all of them, or don't do it to all of the groups, make it fair," said Hill.
"I believe if we're going to raise fees across the board, we might as well say we're raising taxes on parks and recreation activities. I think taking the approach we're going to raise some things, we're not going to raise others and we're going to have a justification to why we're raising those things is indeed a fee where we're trying to do some cost recovery," said Nash.
A decision on what to do won't come until the next meeting.
Both do agree that fees need to be raised, but they don't see eye to eye on exactly how to do it.
This will come up again at the next commission meeting on April 17th.
