Notice For Township Residents
Re: Smiths Falls Recreation User Fee
The Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley was approached by the Town of Smiths Falls in 2012 to negotiate an update to the recreation grant provided to the Town by the Township. Since that time there have been numerous meetings with representatives from Elizabethtown-Kitley, Town staff and other affected municipalities (Drummond-North Elmsley, Montague and Merrickville-Wolford).
The Township paid a yearly amount to the Town for recreation services for a number of years. In 2013 the Township paid $8,979.11. The Town was seeking to almost triple this amount to $24,429.72.
During discussions the Township made it clear that it was willing to subsidize youth participation in some manner. This is in keeping with the recreation agreement the Township has with the Township of Athens. There were also discussions regarding rental rates and operations.
The Town confirmed that the Town was not considering rental rate increases and that operational reviews were to be completed but they felt their costs were in keeping with similar facilities. The Town also advised that this was an ‘all or nothing’ agreement. If the Township did not agree to subsidize both youth and adult programs as set out in the proposed agreement, there would be no agreement.
As The Township felt strongly that the recreation agreements between Elizabethtown-Kitley and its neighbouring municipalities (Athens, Brockville and Smiths Falls) should be consistent, the decision was reached by Council to not enter into a new agreement with Smiths Falls.
By rejecting the Town’s proposed agreement, Council recognized that it would continue to subsidize the youth of the Township who will be participating in hockey and figure skating activities in Smiths Falls. To date, Council has not determined how this will be managed or the amount that the Township will subsidize.
Those residents, who have registered your children in hockey or figure skating, please save your receipt. Once the process and amount of subsidization is established you will be asked to submit your receipt.
