The City of Williamsburg has proposed changes to recreation fees at Waller Mill Park and the pool at the Quarterpath Recreation Center in the face of a $1 million revenue shortfall for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

City Manager Jack Tuttle is proposing a $2 vehicle fee to use Waller Mill Park, which costs the city $231,350 per year to run. The fees, which would be collected by automated gates at the park entrance, should bring in $200,000 per year on top of an estimated $80,000 from existing fees like boats rentals, Tuttle said.

He also proposed cutting hours as well as raising fees at the Quarterpath pool. Hours would be reduced from noon-7 p.m. daily to noon-5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Admission would be raised to $3 for children and $4 for adults.
