A surprise for some groups wanting to use Hamilton Public School facilities like gyms this year.
There’s been a price hike.
School Board Chair Todd White says the school board will no longer be covering the costs for weekend staffing, which run up to time and a half for Saturday’s and double time on Sunday’s.
White says there are ways to help out community groups, but they may have to be flexible about changing from the weekend to a weekday and about location.
He says the money will be redirected towards school repairs and maintenance.
