Why Do I Pay a Fee if I Pay Taxes

The basic philosophy of the Kingsbury Park District is to offer diversified leisure services, including recreational programs and facilities, while ensuring that all citizens have an equal opportunity to take advantage of these services. However, since the demand upon the District is greater than the public's ability through tax dollars to support that demand, and since tax revenues are greatly limited for all types of governmental service, it is necessary to charge fees. These fees supplement other sources of revenue used by the District and are means to continue to provide and expand basic services on an equitable basis.

The Kingsbury Park District residents, via property taxes, make a significant financial contribution to the operation Park District whether they use it r not. The Non-Resident Fair Share concept is intended to apportion an equalizing fee to non-resident participants so they contribute to the overall financing of the Park District on an equitable basis with residents. Throughout this website, the higher fee is the non-resident fair share fee. A resident is defined as anyone living within the geographical boundaries of the Kingsbury Park District.

How Can I find out if I am a Park District Resident or Not?

The simplest way to determine your status is to examine your property tax statement. If you pay taxes to the Kingsbury Park District on the property where you live, you are a Park District Resident. The Park District does not include all of Bond County. In Short the Park District encircles an area just slightly larger than the city of Greenville, and includes property surrounding Governor Bond Lake, as well. You can contact the Park District for more information.

The Kingsbury Park District assumes no responsibility for injuries or accidents occurring at programs or activities. It does not carry medical or loss of personal property insurance for program participants. The cost would make program fees prohibitive. Reviewing your own insurance plan to be certain that you and your family have proper coverage is advisable.

Vandalism comes in many forms, from littering during sports events to more severe cases, such as driving across Park Sports Fields. All of these acts cause higher maintenance costs, repair and clean up time in your Parks. In 2012 alone, over $3,000.00 was spent on picking up littler in the parks. We would like to ask all participants to place all their personal trash in designated receptacles or give careless individuals a hand by picking up their trash for them. Should you see significant acts of vandalism call the Greenville Police Department at (618) 664-2131 or the Bond County Sheriff's Department at (618) 664-2151. For reports concerning Patriot's Park and the Nature Preserve please contact the Park District Office directly at (618) 664-4969.
