Redwater is keeping fun, affordable.
Town council decided facility fees for Pembina Place and the pool will remain unchanged for 2018.
"There's still a lot of families out there going through some tough times right now. We didn't want to put any more of a burden on them by increasing the fees," said Redwater mayor Mel Smith.
This will be the second year in a row Redwater has put a freeze on recreation costs.
"Basically what we did was we added more expense on our plate, because all of our operating costs have gone up, but we just chose to absorb that this year," added Smith.
Pembina Place and the pool are used by plenty of sporting groups throughout the area.
