The City of Wood River will be keeping its rates the same in 2013 at the Aquatic Center. The prices haven't changed for a few years now, but there will be one difference this year. The pool will close a couple of weeks earlier, instead of going all the way to Labor Day Weekend. This year's closing day will be August 18.
The city also passed the ordinance setting rates at the Belk Park Golf Course. Park & Recreation Director Jason Woody says the avid golfer can buy a season pass.
The city would like the course to pay for itself in the future. Woody says there are different rates for what is considered the regular season, versus off-season and winter pricing. In most cases, he says the fees only went up a dollar. For more information on rates and promotions, click on the link at this story at AltonDailyNews.com.
