The dreary arguments about refund of rec center fees go on and on.
It is time that people think this problem through so they can answer their own questions.
The fact that the doors are closed does not magically end the cost of rec center operations. Fixed costs and some portion of variable costs continue and must be paid. The rec centers is not owned by some fat cat corporation that can take money out of other pockets and thus relieve its customers of any financial burden. It is owned by us, the residents of Sun City. We residents are the fat cat corporation that has to pony up for these costs.
So, if fees are refunded now, they will have to be recouped in the annual assessment. There is no other source for this money.
We all wish that the pandemic would go away, but that won’t happen in the near term. These unpleasant financial aspects are going to be with us for a while.
