A new year brings a fresh set of increased fees and charges for Coquitlam residents as well as businesses and developers operating in the city.

Last month, city council approved the 2014 rate bylaw, which is expected to add $222,600 to the general revenue plus an additional $580,000 to the utility fund.

The fee bump includes the standardization of all recreation facility levies under the new One Pass program that was implemented Jan. 1 and will take effect starting April 1.

Single admission to all of Coquitlam rec centres (i.e., pool, skating, fitness) will be: $5.71 for adults, $4.29 for youths and seniors, and $2.86 for kids and seniors over 85. A monthly One Pass month will cost: $51.90 for adults, $38.93 for youths and seniors, and $25.95 for kids and seniors over 85.

Meanwhile, youth groups will continue to pay nothing to rent sports fields and courts in Coquitlam, a policy that was adopted several years ago to encourage more kids to get active.
