Basehor residents' $400,000 investment in youth sports will pay immediate dividends, in the form of a half-price discount for the families of children taking the diamond this spring or hitting the gridiron this fall.
In a letter to Basehor residents, Mayor Terry Hill supports a reduction in participation fees for Basehor residents at the Field of Dreams athletic facility.
With the approach of the first year of youth sports at Basehor's Field of Dreams since the city took control of the complex, the Basehor City Council must decide later this month how much of a financial break to give to the families whose tax dollars went to pay for the purchase price of nearly $400,000.
The city of Basehor is set for its first year providing youth sports programming at the Field of Dreams sports complex after awarding an operations contract, and the new arrangement will lead to savings for Basehor residents.
