A Schenectady City Council committee has agreed to make no changes to the fee structure for the use of fields at city owned parks for 2018.
But, the panel has approved a resolution for a $1,500 security deposit for sports leagues that use the parks and fields.
Half of the deposit would be required at the beginning of the season, and the other half during the middle.
The money would go into an escrow account and be returned at season's end.
Youth baseball leagues, including Babe Ruth leagues and high school baseball would be exempt.
