Senior center fee is prohibitive

By From page A8 | December 15, 2012

What has happened to our Fairfield City Council? Many seniors were convinced that the new 1 percent sales tax going into effect on April 1, 2013, was needed for city services, which includes the senior center. We have now been informed if you do not have a Fairfield address, a monthly $5 fee will be charged at the senior center.

I am a bridge player. Our bridge group includes players from Fairfield, Suisun City and Vacaville. Many could afford to pay this fee. The principle of this matter is my contention.

These same bridge players could play in Suisun City, too small to accommodate tables of bridge, without a fee. The Vacaville senior center does not require a fee levied for utilizing a room to play bridge. Will our Fairfield City Council please address this issue?

    No they won`t but if it helps I say charge everyone a door fee, that way us tax payers don’t have to supplement the center at all. That is probably not the answer you were looking for
