Downey : Council Hikes 95 City Fees, Creates 13 New Ones

June 24, 1993

Residents will pay more for city ambulance services, golf, park kitchens and picnic shelters beginning July 1.

In an attempt to balance a $56-million budget, the City Council unanimously decided Tuesday to increase 95 city fees and create 13 new ones.

The new fees include a $100 charge to business owners who want to put up new signs, a charge to homeowners if police have to respond more than once to a noisy party, and a $2 parking fee at Wilderness Park, 10999 Little Lake Road, on weekends and holidays.

Residents who do not pay an annual subscriber fee for paramedic services will be charged $285 to be picked up by an ambulance, up from $248. Most golf course fees were increased. Beginning in July, golfers using the city-owned Rio Hondo Country Club, 10627 Old River School Road, will pay $16 to play 18 holes on a weekday, up from $12. Weekend games of 18 holes will cost $20, up from $16.

City officials expect to raise an additional $25,000 annually for the general fund, said Assistant City Manager Lee Powell.
