“I don’t want to see us doing more for one league than another,” Hooks said. “I have no problem with lowering fees because I want to see our leagues break even.”
League officials had asked for a $5 reduction this year and another $5 reduction next year. Council member Heidi Wilder said the second $5 reduction would be addressed next year if the league was found to need it.
Holt said the city would receive a monthly financial statement from the league in an attempt to “be good stewards of city property.”
