Public Comment on Non-Agenda Items
Questions were raised by two Parkland residents about the new fees for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey with the concern that the new $3.00 fee for students may prohibit attendance. Superintendent Sniscak reviewed the timeline for the implementation of the fees, explaining this was part of the original discussion for the turf field project as part of raising revenues to sustain the field which will require an update every 8 years. He further explained that we currently allow for free admission to events after half time, and that the lacrosse fees raised this past spring totaled more than $10,000.00 and did not seem to negatively impact attendance.
