  • Develop, implement and enforce a User Agreement for all entities utilizing City facilities and resources to run their programs;
  • To review the budgets and fee structures for all leagues and entities utilizing City assets that have User Agreements (non-rentals) in an effort to ensure that all fees being charged to the public are fair, reasonable and affordable;
  • To periodically review the City of Glen Cove fee schedule as it pertains to Parks & Recreation Department facility and program fees;
  • Improve upon the programs that are currently available to residents and youth of neighboring communities;
