“The biggest revenue drivers are the hiring of halls and Artscape parking to members of the public. The tariffs for the hiring of halls are in line with the social services, recreation and parks tariff schedule, which are set at affordable levels to encourage usage and does not cover the cost of products or services,” the asset management department said in its proposal.
The City also wants to increase its parking fees at the Artscape due to a rise in the number of events and shows. The City will also be pushing up the prices of its recreation and park halls.
“Facilities management tariffs have been increased in line with inflation,” the department said.
Last month, the City said it was experiencing high levels of vandalism and theft at its facilities.
