Possible fees for soccer fields at Osborn Park and the Osborn's still-closed swimming pool were on the minds of Erie MetroParks board members Wednesday.

Board members and Director-Secretary Jon Granville agreed to talk about charging local soccer leagues and other organizations fees to use the playing fields at Osborn Park.

No decision will be made until the board meets with organizations that would be affected, and fees would not begin until 2008. A date for the meeting has not been agreed upon.

Also Wednesday, the board's newest member, Micah Vawters, said he hasn't given up on the idea of reopening the park's pool, which closed last year for lack of funds.
