For the first time in four years, the Cortland Youth Bureau will increase the fees for use of City Park buildings, pavilions, shelters in the City of Cortland. Currently, the Youth Bureau charges a $100 fee to reserve the Beaudry building, Burch building, Rotary shelter and Yaman Pavilions and $125 for non-city residents.
The last time the Cortland Youth Bureau raised the fees was back in 2019. An increase in the fees will assist the Youth Bureau in covering the costs of rising salaries and overtime to clean and maintain the buildings during weekend rentals.
The Common Council voted to authorize the Youth Bureau to increase fees for all facilities to $150 for City of Cortland residents and $175 to non-city residents, beginning on January 1st 2024.
