Sports teams pick up more costs for playing fields

 

The Portola Valley Town Council's 2009 decision to increase playing fees for organized youth and adult sports teams appears to have achieved the council's goal: to have the teams evenly split with the town the costs of maintaining two baseball and two soccer fields, according to a staff report.

Playing fee revenues of $80,920 covered 53 percent of the costs, the report said.

Field maintenance costs dropped to $153,000 for the budget year that ended June 30, a 9 percent drop from 2008-09 figures, according to a staff report.

Also reported over that same period: irrigation water usage dropped 9 percent, but water costs are up 14 percent.
