Fee Hikes Funding Camping Upgrades
There will be user rate increases this year at the Anthony Henday Campground in Innisfall, Alberta, the Innisfall Province reported.
On Jan. 27, the town council approved requests from the Innisfail Lions Club, which is in the second year of a lease arrangement with the town to operate the campground, to increase site user rates and to make infrastructure improvements.
Council members heard that the club wanted to increase the rate for tent sites to $15 from $12, and regular power sites to $25 from $22. The council also agreed with the club’s request to have a $30 fee for the five sites with 30-amp power.
The Lions campground committee also said it was necessary to winterize the shower/washroom building to enable staff members to drain water lines to reduce the risk of pipe bursts, as well as expensive repair in times of power outages.
The council members learned the Lions Club is taking full responsibility for all improvement work costs.
