Park Fees Addressed

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Five Billings West End property developers will pay more in park maintenance by the end of 2013.

The Billings Parks and Recreation Finance Department discovered developers were not paying for empty lots they own in those five subdivisions. Billings Parks Director, Mike Whitaker, said he his happy the Billings City Council approved to reassess the park fees on Monday night. "From a parks and recreation perspective, it's always good that everyone who enjoys the benefits of parks pays equally, and they support other parks," Whitaker said.

The five subdivisions include Copper Ridge, Uinta-Twin Oaks, Falcon Ridge, Ironwood, and Rehberg Ranch Estates. Whitaker said developers can expect to see a change by December 2013.
