Miami's Parks Board is proposing a rate increase for rental of public facilities and use of the municipal swimming pool.

Additionally, the board is asking that a wading pool at Taylor Park be permanently closed.

Public Works Director Tim Wilson presented the recommendations to city council members Monday as the panel gathered for a meeting rescheduled from Jan. 1.

Collectively, the increases mean a projected annual revenue increase to the city of $32,516, according to figures provided by Wilson.

Recommended increases are as follows:

Grandstand

Non-profit rental fee increase to $500. Previously, non-profit organizations paid $50.

No increase is recommended for for-profit groups. The fee of $1,000 a night is suggested to remain as it is.

Fairgrounds

An “early move-in fee of $200 per day rental fee is suggested for use of the fairgrounds. Wilson said the fee would cover the expense of accommodating vendors who arrive in travel-trailers prior to events and hook up to electric and water services available at the fairgrounds.

Exhibit building

The $25 non-profit fee for use is recommended to be raised to $250.

The $100 for-profit fee is suggested to be raised from to $250.

Beef and dairy barns

The $25 non-profit fee for use is recommended to be raised to $250.

The $100 for-profit fee is suggested to be raised from to $250.

Poultry shed, show arena

and swine and sheep barns.

The $15 non-profit fee for use is recommended to be raised to $200.

The $50 for-profit fee is suggested to be raised from to $200.

Bleachers

A flat fee of $50 is recommended for each set of bleachers that is provided by the city for events.

Previously, a charge of $35 per bleacher was assessed for up to 14 bleachers. If 15 or more bleachers were used, the charge was $25 per bleacher.

Municipal pool

The admission fee for children 13 and under is recommended to be raised to $1.50. Currently, children enter for $1.

The $1.25 admission fee for people 14 and above is suggested to be raised to $2.

There is no suggested change for the season pass rate.

Two-hour pool rental fee is recommended to be increased to $250. Currently, rental is $150.

Daycare pass for up to 10 children is recommended to be raised to $200. Currently, there is a $100 fee for the pass.

Daycare passes for groups of children numbering between 11 and 20 is suggested to be increased to $250, up from $150.

Groups of more than 20 are recommended to be charged $300, up from the current $200 fee.

Wilson said closure of the Taylor Park wading pool is recommended due to the lack of a filtering system there.

The city drains and fills the wading pool every day during the swimming season.

City officials are looking for public input on the proposed fee increases.
