Hanover is changing it’s policy concerning non-resident use of parks, recreation and cultural services.

Council Monday approved staff recommendations to eliminate the non-resident fee policy, in its current form, for programs, registrations, or facility rentals that begin September 1st.

All non-resident fees collected by Hanover user groups for programs that started prior to September 1st will be payable under the terms of the current policy.

Council also approved measures to address the loss of non-resident fee revenues for 2016 and beyond, ensuring residential taxes would not be impacted by this decision.

Non-residents are asked to disregard the ‘non-resident’ fee and only consider the ‘resident’ charge in the upcoming Recreation Guide coming out August 18th.
