NEW STATE LAW MAY PUSH SURF N' SWIM PRICES UP

Admission prices to the Layton Surf N' Swim may be going up this fall because the city is required by a new state law to pay sales tax on admissions to the swimming complex.

Steve Ashby, Layton finance director, said the new law will cost the city more than $7,000 in sales tax payments.He said the recreation staff decided against raising the fees during the busy summer season and is now making an evaluation to decide how much the admission fees should be raised to cover actual costs.

Ashby hopes to round off the increase to make the admission cost more user-friendly for parents who regularly send their children to the complex.
