SHERMAN, TX -- Sports leagues can no longer play for free at city fields and facilities in Sherman.

City council members have approved new park fees for leagues.

The city will charge both non-city and city-sponsored groups between 4 to 15 dollars per player per season.

The new fees are expected to bring in about $14,000 dollars in revenue.

Kevin Winkler said, "We're tremendously behind the times with respect to user fees. If you look at like cities in the Dallas area, they've been doing this for several years."

The fees take effect October 1st.
