Season Membership Prices

Take advantage of discounted prices by purchasing your season tickets NOW UNTIL

Wednesday, May 24, 2017!!!

 




























***Please note that if you chose the “voucher” last season, you may apply that towards the cost of your membership.  We have a master list with the names of people who took the voucher option.  People who took the voucher option can purchase a season membership pass any of the ways listed below.


Borough – residents who live in Fleetwood Borough and pay property taxes to Fleetwood Borough.  The following street names are in Fleetwood Borough:  Almond Alley, Apple Alley, Arch, Ash, Beech, Bird, Brookfield, Burr Alley, Buttonwood, Cambridge, Cardinal, Cedar, Chestnut, Clover Alley, Cotton, Depot Alley, Doe, Dogwood, Elm, Evergreen, Fieldcrest, Fir, Fleetwood, Forest, Foundry Alley, Franklin, Friendship, Green, Greenway, Heritage, Hickory, Hickory Alley, Hoffman Alley, Jackson, Laurel, Liberty Alley, Linden, Locust, Lumber Alley, Magnolia, Main, Madeira Alley, Maple, Moss Alley, Mulberry Alley, Myrtle, New Alley, Oak, Park Alley, Pearl Alley, Pine, Plum Alley, Poplar, Quince Alley, Race, Richmond, Rose, Salem, School Alley, Shell Alley, Somerset, Spring, Springfield, Spruce, Stone Alley, Vine, Walnut, Walnuttown Rd., Washington, Westfield, Willow, and Wood Alley.  If you do not live on one of these streets within borough limits, you must pay the Non-Borough fees.


Non-Boroughresidents who live outside of Fleetwood Borough and pay property taxes to other entities.

People often ask why there is a difference in price for Fleetwood Borough residents and non-borough residents.  A portion of the taxes that Fleetwood Borough residents pay is used to operate the pool.  Because of that, the Fleetwood Borough council members offer a reduced rate to the residents since they are already contributing to the pool.  This year the neighboring townships were asked if they would be willing to contribute money towards the pool so all Fleetwood Area School District residents could possibly pay the same amount, and they declined.  Due to that, Fleetwood Borough residents will continue to pay a lower fee than non-borough residents.


Family – A “family” consists of up to 2 parents and dependent children who all reside in the same residence.  A “dependent child” is age 17 or below or a full-time student who is age 22 or below.  


Pair – A “pair” consists of (1) of the following:  (2) partners (spouses or significant others) who reside at the same residence, OR (1) parent and (1) dependent child who reside at the same residence.  A “dependent child” is age 17 or below or a full-time student who is age 22 or below.
