Wait and see. This is just the beginning. I would venture to say fees for the Sharks, Hammerheads ect, ect will come to fruition. I understand the thinking behind the approval of this fee. After all, it does cost the City to perform security for these events. But, it will come to light what is good for one will be good for the other as in subsidizing leases to collegiate summer league and professional teams just to name a couple. Youth teams will be next. It cost money to maintain those fields. Most all of the facilities where soccer, lacrosse, baseball and football for youth as well as the aforementioned are City or County owned and is it fair to charge one and not the other? I don't know the current budgets and what it costs to maintain and oversee all of these venues but I know Ben McCoy and Josh Fulton can probably inform us. This will more than likely be challenged somehow and sometime down the road so expect more of the same. The gate has been opened.
