Sponsored by: Hunt <br /> Postponed to: May 27, 2014 <br /> CITY OF SEWARD, ALASKA <br /> RESOLUTION 2014-046 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SEWARD, <br /> ALASKA, APPROVING TEEN AND YOUTH CENTER DAY CAMP FEES <br /> WHEREAS, the 2012/2013 Budget included an increase in estimated TYC revenues <br /> associated with an increase in day camp fees. This fee increase resulted in an unexpected 50% <br /> decrease in day camp participants in the summers of 2012 and 2013; and <br /> WHEREAS, the City's original intent was twofold; a) to assist low-income and middle- <br /> income families by offering a sliding fee discount; and b) to demonstrate the value of the <br /> program through increased fees for other families; and <br /> WHEREAS, the revised fee structure did reduce the burden on lower-income families <br /> but also resulted in a significant decline, by more than half, in program participation; and <br /> WHEREAS, the overall goal and mission of day camps is to provide Seward's youth <br /> with a safe and supervised place to recreate, learn, grow and improve their physical, social, and <br /> emotional health; and <br /> WHEREAS, our goal is to increase program participation to reduce at-risk youth <br /> behaviors and to provide more children with healthy recreational options. <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE <br /> CITY OF SEWARD, ALASKA, that: <br /> Section 1. TYC day camp fees are amended as follows: Regular Day Camp fees $60 per <br /> week and $70 per week for Regular Day Camp late payment. Adventure Camp fees $100 per <br /> week and $120 per week for Adventure Camp late payment. <br /> Section 2. For regular TYC day camp fees, Tier I and Tier II rates are amended to be <br /> half price and a multi-family discount of after two children enrolled, the third child and above is <br /> half price. <br /> Section 3. TYC Program Revenues budgets for 2014 and 2015 require no adjustment. <br /> Section 4. This resolution shall take effect immediately upon its adoption. <br /> PASSED AND APPROVED by the City Council of the City of Seward, Alaska, this <br /> 27th day of May, 2014. <br /> 60. <br />
