As some of you are well aware of by now, a new township ordinance has been passed stating that there will be a new "Field usage fee" for all activities taking place in DeHart, Maplecrest, Memorial, and Borden fields. 

These new fees will go to future repairs, renovations and maintenance to our parks and fields. For Maplewood and South Orange residents, in addition to any current registration fee, a "field use fee" in the amount of $20.00 will be added on each participant registering for a department sponsored activity or program at the fields stated above. For any Non-residents, in addition to any registration fee, a "field use fee" in the amount of $40.00 will be added to each participant registering for a department sponsored activity or program.

To view or print a copy of the new township "field use fee" ordinance, they are available on the Maplewood Township website, www.maplewoodnj.org located under the government tab, you will find a secondary tab "ordinances," please click 2016 ordinances, and look for ordinance number 2819-16.
