Why did Council implement beach fees for non-residents?

With the ongoing public health concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, the City implemented capacity limits at the beaches in 2020, under the authority of the provincial beach guidance document, to ensure that visitors are safe. To help offset the costs of enforcing those limits, the City is again requiring non-residents pay an admission fee, under Bylaw #006-21, Temporary Beaches and Recreational Areas Near Water Bylaw.
