Cost of Service Methodology Update - Project Details


OVERVIEW STATEMENT:
recommendation
Provide the project details to City Council regarding the Parks and Recreation Department's update to the 2017/18 Cost of Service Methodology that was adopted by the City Council in January 2018. The project is driven by policy direction in the Parks, Arts, Recreation, Culture and Conservation (PARCC) Plan to define, establish and implement financial goals, cost recovery targets, and a subsidy allocation model to inform recreation program decision-making. This update will include reviewing and assuring definition of direct and indirect costs are accurately in use, clarifying categories of services, and placement of all programs and services within those categories and proposing changes as warranted. The department will be working again with GreenPlay, LLC., the consultant who provided direction and support with our original methodology creation, to perform this review and update.
