(d) The basis of the fees structure was developed several years ago in consultation with all outdoor sports. The relativity between various fees such as why for example AFL is more expensive than Hockey is based on three agreed variables, which are:

the area used by a given sport, so that a larger area is given a greater value over a smaller area e.g. Netball is a small area while AFL is large;

the cost of providing infrastructure for a given sport e.g. Touch has no goal posts while Rugby has goal posts; and

the wear and tear of a given sport e.g. Rugby with studs and scrumaging is high wear while Touch with runners is low wear.

(e) Total cost for electricity is as follows:

2012-2013 - $311,040

2013-2014 - $373,605

Total cost for water usage is as follows:

2012-2013 - $6,592,751

2013-2014 - $6,747,974

(f) Sport and Recreation Services have security at the Narrabundah Ballpark with an annual cost of $10,800. In addition the two Sport and Recreation Services depots in Holt and Waramanga have video security systems that cost $56,800 each to install. The monthly monitoring cost is $85.00 per depot per month. Some clubs have installed security systems at their own cost at various sportsgrounds, typically where they store large amounts of equipment.

(g) Total Sportsgrounds Maintenance employee expenses are as follows:

2012-2013 - $1,729,887

2013-2014 - $1,790,072

(h) Other Maintenance costs are as follows:

2012-2013 - $4,892,502

Expenditure items within these figures include, but are not limited to, sportsground mowing (Service Level Agreement with TAMS), Plumbing contract and repairs, sportsground vehicle fleet, rubbish and waste removal, floodlight repairs and consumables such as fertiliser and plant materials.

(i) Sport and Recreation Services do not specifically record vandalism as a cost item. Repairs are dealt with out of the operational maintenance budget under repairs and maintenance. Sport and Recreation Services has developed a set of sportsground building guidelines that ensure buildings are robust and vandal resistant in design.
