City proposes Waller Mill Park fee in fiscal budget

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.
