Notice Regarding Credit Card Fee’s
Effective January 1st, 2024, Ashland Parks and Recreation will be implementing a nominal credit card processing fee for all transactions made using a credit card. As part of this change, a 2.5% credit card processing fee will be applied to all credit card purchases.
This decision has been made to offset the expenses associated with processing credit card transactions. While we strive to provide convenient payment options, the costs incurred by credit card processing have become significant. As a result, this fee will help us manage these expenses more effectively. We want to assure you that we remain committed to accepting cash and check payments that do not incur additional fees. We appreciate your understanding and continued support of Ashland Parks and Recreation.
Here's two ways to avoid the credit card fee's:
1. Come into the Bretting Community Center between 9-4:30 pm and register/pay for programs with cash/check
Program registration can also happen remotely -- see the below for that option.
2. Call the Bretting Center at 715-685-1642 or email Paige (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mandy (email@example.com) to register for classes.
Parks and Rec staff will register participants remotely and allow a "pay later" option. Then, program participants can come into the Bretting Center before program start to pay with cash/check.
Please check the calendar HERE as there are some days the center will be closed for events and private rentals.
All drop-in programs are $1 unless otherwise specified.
