Most programs and classes have two fees, the full fee for nonresidents and a discounted fee for residents.
A Resident is any person who lives within the city limits of Indianola. This is not to be confused with school attendance, because city and school district boundaries are not the same. You may have an Indianola mailing address, but reside outside of the city limits.
Indianola residents make a significant contribution to the financing and operation of the Indianola Parks and Recreation Department through city property taxes. These taxes are paid whether or not individuals participate in programs or use facilities. Therefore, Indianola residents receive a discount off the regular fee.
To ensure equity, nonresidents (those living outside the Indianola city limits) will pay the regular program or facility fee.
