The EDHCSD charges 2% of revenue collected to fund its fee program administration. The District's current request includes $55,458 for administration costs, $16,445.65 for design and planning services for Bass Lake Park, $15,218.24 for design and planning services for Valley View Park, and $60,188.34 for additional restrooms at Kalithea Park.
