St. Peters has given approval to the practice of allowing St. Charles residents to pay a cheaper rate to use its swimming and other recreational facilities if St. Charles also allows St. Peters residents the same.
The St. Peters Board of Aldermen approved an ordinance at its meeting last month to renew a reciprocal agreement with St. Charles that will offer the discounted rates for 2018-19. Basically, the cities are allowing respective city residents to pay resident fees.
Under the ordinance, St. Peters agrees to permit any St. Charles resident who displays a valid St. Charles Park Passport card to use the St. Peters RecPlex and outdoor aquatic facilities if the pay the current fee charged St. Peters residents.
In turn, St. Charles agrees to permit any St. Peters resident who displays a valid St. Peters Resident Privilege card to use St. Charles’ three outdoor aquatic facilities if they pay the same fees charged St. Charles residents.
The agreement will run from Jan. 1, 2018, to Dec. 31, 2019.
