Tonight: Portola Valley may adopt tennis law

 

A new law under consideration by the Portola Valley Town Council may establish penalties for conducting commercial instruction, such as tennis, on a public facility without a permit.

The council will discuss the matter at its meeting on Wednesday, March 23, which starts at 7:30 p.m.

According to a recommendation in a staff report, a violation of the ordinance would result in an infraction, a category of petty crime that includes traffic violations and that results in a fine if convicted.

Commercial instruction at town facilities such as parks, open space and recreation areas requires a written agreement that includes insurance, according to the report.

The council meets in the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road. This meeting will include a staff presentation on a recent Parks and Recreation Committee discussion of this topic.

Also on the agenda: an increase to the discounted rate that a member of the fulltime town staff pays to use the community hall. A staff report recommends that the current rate of $200, set in 1993, increase at least to $525 and possibly $900, with a refundable deposit of $1,000.
