HORSHAM Aquatic Centre’s prices will increase by an average of 2.5 per cent in July.

Horsham Rural City councillors approved the increase on Monday night. 

The centre’s operator, The YMCA, proposed to increase the fees in line with the Consumer Price Index.

Cr Mark Radford said Horsham had the cheapest family swim in Australia at $10 and it would stay that way with a zero per cent increase.

The largest increase will be to the non-member families creche service, which will rise by 25.1 per cent to $15.20.

Adult and child and concession swim prices will rise by 10 cents and gym sessions will increase by 40 cents while swimming lessons will increase between 15 and 30 cents.

The centre’s net operating cost in Horsham council’s draft budget is $583,500.
