Allegheny County Council is considering a plan that would raise county parks fees across the board, including eliminating free field usage and adding a 25 percent surcharge on non-county residents.

Among the rate increases are season pool passes, which would increase from $110 per family to $175 per family. Pool passes would be good seven days a week, instead of Monday through Friday. Daily rates for adults would increase from $5 to $6.

The cost to reserve fields for three hours would double from $30 to $60 and would eliminate free field usage for groups ages 18 and younger.

Prices for senior citizen passes to golf at North Park and South Park would increase from $60 to $80. The eligible age for senior passes would increase from 55 to 60.

Prices for weddings at Hartwood Acres and races in all parks would also increase.

The increases were introduced at Tuesday's council meeting and referred to committee.
