review of the RecSports user groups was given. The recommended increases in user
fees were unanimously supported.
- February 17, 2006 (Updates, Election, and Announcements):
The committee was updated on the cost of utilities. Costs are escalating primarily
because of refining capacity losses and energy production damage from Hurricane
Katrina. It is anticipated that next year’s unit price will exceed expectations
by an additional ten percent.
In response to user requests for extended pool hours, a discussion of all campus
pool facilities and their hours of operations took place. It was decided that
before any changes to operating hours were made, it was important to gather and
review participation statistics and monitor usage of the new facility as we transition
from off-season into in-season hours.
Elections for the chair of the 2006-07 Recreational Sports Committee were held.
Marc Musick will be chair next year.
