At the April 18 council work session, James Graff, superintendent of Recreation and Parks, said the program price "really should have been raised last year."

Deputy Mayor Lisa Swain said the price is a bargain.

"You won't find a town with lower prices for these hours of operation," she said.

Residents may sign up for the program on the borough's website:

There will be a public hearing on the matter May 16.
