November 24, 2011 (CHICAGO) --Golfers, some boaters, and Bears season ticket holders will have to pay a little more next year under a proposed Chicago Park District budget.
The budget includes no property tax hike and has new discounts for families and the military- but handful of amenities would see increases:
- A round of golf at a park district course or a bucket of balls at a driving range would cost a dollar more.
- parking for Chicago Bears season ticket holders would increase $3 per game,
- and the price of keeping a boat at any or Chicago's harbors -- Burnham, DuSable and Belmont -- would go up 3-percent a year, costing a typical boater $100 to $200 more.
The fee hikes are aimed at closing a budget gap of about $25 million.
