Chatham Fees Increase

The new Chatham County budget increased fees for several recreation programs and park facility rentals. The increases will bring fees more in line with surrounding communities and help recoup actual department costs, said Tracy Burnett, director of Chatham County Parks & Recreation.

Updated fees are youth basketball, $40 for county residents and $45 for non-residents; youth softball, $35 for county residents and $45 for non-residents; park shelter rental, $30 for a three-hour rental; park field rental, $20 for a three-hour reservation for a field with no lights provided, $35 with lights.
