Recreation Department Updates
We continue to get a lot of inquiries regarding the status of our programs affected by the failed override and we would like to provide a brief update.
SWISH BASKETBALL:• With the failed override, the hours of the Community Building are being reduced from 78 hours to approximately 40 hours/week with no set weekend use. Plans are in the works to allow Swish to continue through combined usage of all available community facilities.
OPEN GYM:• Free Open Gym is another program impacted by the failed override. The Community Building budget reductions are $25,000 for the current year and $50,000 for next year. With the reduction in operating hours of the building, open gym will be significantly reduced.
• The Recreation Department budget was reduced $35,000 for the current year and $70,000 for next year. This will result in a fee being assessed for all programs, including Open Gym.
• Once we are able to confirm the new building schedule, we will announce the schedule and fee for the modified Open Gym program.
SUMMER PROGRAM:• Our summer program is self-supporting. This program will continue, and our hope is that we will be able to maintain a similar fee structure. Since this is a self-supporting program, we work hard to staff appropriately, and follow DPH 105CMR regarding staff ratios. We have never had more than 2 on-site supervisors. This past summer, we had one supervisor, one activities coordinator, and 6 counselors. We hope to continue operating this program out of Bourne Middle School.
LIFEGUARDS:• The Lifeguard Salary Line Item is approximately 30% of the overall Recreation Dept. Budget. This line item needed to be eliminated in order to reduce our budget by the required $70,000 for the next fiscal year.
After Town Meeting on Monday night, we will know for certain where the Rec. Dept. and the Community Building stand in regards to all of our programming. All of the programs that the Recreation Department provide are important to us. We will continue to do everything we can to provide the best programs for the children of Bourne.
As always we are available by phone, email, or in office to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding the Recreation Department.
